UTICA, N.Y. -- Authorities say an upstate New York man using a samurai sword to fight with another man struck his 8-year-old son in the head.

Police in Utica tell local media outlets that 42-year-old Thar Kyi (ky) barged into the home where his three children were getting ready for school Tuesday morning and began swinging the sword at their mother's boyfriend.
