More trouble for the victim in a samurai sword attack last month.

Kenneth Sipes fought off an assailant last month, but now police say he is in trouble for threatening someone with a gun. The alleged incident happened at a Springs apartment complex on April 7. He and another man, Craig Mazique, were arrested during a traffic stop April 9.

Sipes will make his first court appearance Wednesday.

Sipes was injured in early March after his neighbor allegedly swung a sword at his face. Sipes told police he heard a knock at his door, and when he opened it the suspect attacked him.

That suspect, Sean Knapp, was in court last week.

Police say Sipes is a convicted felon, and faces charges for menacing and having a gun.
