A Florida man has been arrested after he threatened and assaulted his neighbors using a “kindness” machete.
Bryan Stewart, 30, is accused of using the blade to cut his neighbor after the neighbor had come over, worried about the occupants of the house. Another neighbor says that they had heard Stewart yelling and banging on the neighbors door all day prior to the incident.
The victim, another neighbor, said that around midnight he could hear Stewart telling someone in the house that he was going to “kill ’em with kindness.” When he went to tell him to keep quiet, that’s when Stewart attacked him.
Stewart appeared to be drunk at the time of the incident and needed to be tased in order to be detained. Stewart was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill and aggravated battery.
