Officials said 47-year-old Brandon McCray got into a fight with two people inside the home after he accused them of swiping his socks.

At one point during the argument, McCray reportedly threatened the people in the home, saying he would be back and they would be sorry, WFLA reported.

McCray left the home only to return with a ninja sword, which he swung at his roommate, 53-year-old Frank Smith.

Authorities said Smith nearly lost several fingers trying to defend himself, FOX13 News reported.

One woman in the house, identified as McCray’s 43-year-old ex-girlfriend, suffered a large and significant cut on her leg, the arrest warrant stated.

McCray left the home after the attack and was taken into custody when located at a neighbor’s home. He was charged with domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and attempted murder.

Both victims were taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point with non-life threatening injuries.
