A woman in Washington is reportedly facing assault charges after she attacked her boyfriend with a samurai sword.
30-year-old Emily Javier says that she believed her boyfriend to be cheating on her, claiming that she found red hair in the shower and suspicious scratch-marks on his back. She then hid a samurai sword beneath their bed, attacking him while asleep.
Alex Lovell, 29, woke up and managed to restrain his girlfriend despite having 3 almost severed fingers.
“I saw the look in her eyes, and it scared the living poop out of me,” the Lovell told The Oregonian. “I told her I loved her, and she was killing me. She needed to call police, or I was going to die.”
Javier blamed the attack partly on her boyfriend’s excessive video game habits. Lovell, however, credited his survival with those video games and kung-fu movies. He calls himself an “e-thlete” and reportedly spends over 12 hours a day playing “Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds.”
“I barely had time to hang out with my girlfriend, let alone another girl,” he told The Columbian. “I didn’t see it coming, but it makes sense that it happened. She obviously didn’t want anyone else to have me so, samurai sword.”
