I saw the story on News 10 ABC. Thirty-five-year-old Mark Dallas allegedly caused serious physical damage to a woman that he struck the woman numerous times with the sword. It was also reported that he allegedly injured a dog that was in the home with the sword.

The woman and the dog are expected to recover. She was sent to Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown, and the dog was sent to an emergency vet clinic for treatment to its injuries.

Dallas was sent to the Schoharie County Jail, and is due back in Jefferson Court on Nov. 15. He was arrested and has been charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, endangering the welfare of a child, reckless endangerment and several other charges.
