PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Pawtucket man accused of swinging a samurai sword at a group of people has been arrested.

Twenty-eight-year-old Timothy Greve was charged with three counts of felony assault, disorderly conduct and two counts of simple assault.

Police said witnesses saw Greve swing the sword at people after an argument with neighbors late Wednesday.

Police said Greve was taken to Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island to be treated for injuries from another incident and that he allegedly assaulted officers and hospital staff there.

Greve was arraigned Thursday in U.S. District Court in Providence and held on bail.

The Woonsocket Call first reported the arrest.

It was not immediately known if Greve had retained an attorney.
