      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.
