Fox News – A Samurai sword-wielding Mormon bishop helped a neighbor woman escape a Tuesday morning attack by a man who had been stalking her.
Kent Hendrix woke up Tuesday to his teenage son pounding on his bedroom door and telling him somebody was being mugged in front of their house. The 47-year-old father of six rushed out the door and grabbed the weapon closest to him — a 29-inch high carbon steel Samurai sword.
“His eyes got as big as saucers and he kind of gasped and jumped back,” Hendrix said by phone Tuesday afternoon. “As he was coming through the fence, this is where I drew down on him and told him to get down on the ground,” Hendrix told Fox13Now.com. He continued, “he was staring down 29 inches of razor.”
The man ran down the street with the barefoot Hendrix and others in pursuit. Hendrix said he couldn’t catch the man before he fled in his car, but he picked up ChapStick that the man dropped and memorized his license plate.
“I yelled at him, `I’ve got your DNA and I’ve got your license plate: You are so done,”‘ Hendrix said.
If I told you Kent Hendrix isn’t my favorite person in the world right now, I’d be telling the biggest lie I’ve ever told. Just look at some of these lines:
“A Samurai sword-wielding Mormon”
“he was staring down 29 inches of razor”
“memorized his license plate”
“I’ve got your DNA and I’ve got your license plate: You are so done”
Mother of God. No normal human can fire off lines like that and get away with it. There’s a very good chance Kent is a super human. Maybe even a superhero. I wouldn’t put it past him.
I’m kind of curious as to why he has a Samurai sword to begin with. You think he was going with the protection or art route? I’m thinking art with a secondary purpose of having his enemies stare down 29 inches of razor – which the more I say that line, kind of sounds like some weird robot porn.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say Kent is a subscriber of the Budk Catalog. I tweeted about getting one in the mail yesterday, which was addressed in my name. No clue why, but maybe this is destiny and I need some Kent Hendrix type weaponry.
