The Weekly Vice) - Jason Price, a 49-year-old Utah man, was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly attacked a child's pet rabbit with a sword while he was a guest in the family's home.
According to South Salt Lake Police, Price had been invited to spend the night with a family friend last week when the home owner woke up at about 5 a.m. Tuesday to the sound of his daughter screaming.
When the home owner went to investigate, he found price attempting to hold the rabbit down with one hand while wielding a 2 1/2 foot sword in the other hand.
Investigators say Price was attempting to hold the rabbit still so he could kill the animal.
When Price was confronted by the home owner, he retaliated by slicing the man's hand with the sword before fleeing the scene. Price was located a few blocks away from the victims' home and taken into custody.
He was booked into jail and charged with aggravated assault and cruelty to animals.
The rabbit reportedly suffered an injured leg during the attack.
