      Naked Quincy man subdued after wielding samurai sword


      You might have seen a commotion in the 300 block of South 10th Street in Quincy Thursday morning.


      Police responded to reports of a mentally disturbed naked male in the yard of a residence.


      QPD says when the first officer arrived, the man retreated inside his residence to get a samurai sword.


      The man then came back outside and began swinging the sword in the direction of some bystanders.


      Officers used a taser to subdue the man and then took him to Blessing Hospital for treatment.


      No one was hurt.


      No criminal charges are anticipated.
