LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Police in Kentucky say a woman hit a man with a sword and then told the man to tell officers he fell on it.

The Courier Journal reports 47-year-old Angela Hill of Louisville was arrested Saturday and charged with second-degree assault. Louisville Metro police say a witness told officers that Hill and the man argued over money and Hill hit him with the sword twice in the legs.

Hill told police that the man had pulled the sword on her, so she snatched it and dropped it on him. An arrest citation says she tried to hide the attack, telling the man to tell police he fell on the sword.

The man refused treatment, and the extent of his injuries is unclear. The relationship between the two is unclear.
