Family Feud In Elgin Leads To Sword Attack

ELGIN, Ill. (STMW) — A northwest suburban woman unhappy about being kicked out of her aunt’s home vented her frustration by attacking the older woman’s television with a sword.

Elgin police were called to a domestic dispute at a home in the 300 block of Douglas Avenue about 3:20 p.m. Tuesday, where they found a 38-year-old woman and her 21-year-old niece arguing, the Courier-News is reporting.

According to the police report, the women had been living together but the aunt wanted the niece to move out. But the niece said she was afraid that if she left that afternoon, her aunt would throw her belongings onto the lawn. The officer got the niece to promise to leave and the aunt to promise not to throw out her things.

Just 10 minutes later, the aunt called for police again. She said that soon after the officer left, her niece picked up a black sword and repeatedly struck the TV set with it. She also knocked a 2-inch hole in a wall.

The older woman said she did not want to press charges, and the officer advised her to ask the landlord to start legal eviction proceedings.

    A sword? Seriously? I’m beginning to believe that a large majority of these daily news stories are completely fabricated by the parties involved. This attention starved society that we now live in is out of control. This girl is probably twittering all of her friends today about this news story.

      Gimme a break; what 20 year-old could live alone and support themselves in this overpriced dung hole of a city? She probably can’t find a job here in nepotism central……she can always become an entrepreneur and deal crack I guess…..
