NLVPD: Man arrested for attacking man with sword

NORTH LAS VEGAS - A 39-year-old man was arrested over the weekend for allegedly striking a man with a sword several times, according to North Las Vegas Police.

The battery incident involving James McCanna happened earlier this month on Sept. 4.  in the 4700 block of North Rancho Drive.

The 33-year-old victim, whose identity hasn't been released, apparently got into an argument with McCanna.  The argument escalated, so McCanna pulled out a sword and struck the victim multiple times, NLVPD said.

McCanna fled the scene before officers arrived.  The victim was rushed to UMC Trauma for treatment.  His injuries were critical, police said.

On Saturday, Sept. 16, officers located MCanna in the area of Centennial Parkway and Revere Drive. He was taken into police custody and booked into the Las Vegas City Jail for battery with use of a deadly weapon, mayhem with a deadly weapon, and grand larceny auto.
