GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) -- Police in Southern Oregon are looking for a man they say attacked his brother with a samurai sword.

State police say 23-year-old Preston James Sweaney got into an argument with his brother in a motor home in Grants Pass and cut him on the arm and side with the sword. Twenty-one-year-old Nathaniel Sweaney was taken to a local hospital. A cousin who tried to intervene was cut on the hand.

State police say Preston Sweaney fled wearing jeans and no shirt.

He is described as white, 5-foot-9, with a Mohawk haircut, hazel eyes, a scar on his chin, and tattoos on his chest, shoulders and calf. He is also wanted on other outstanding warrants.
