STAMFORD, Conn. — Police found a large collection of medieval weapons while responding to a domestic incident at a Stamford home, according to the Stamford Advocate.
The Stamford Advocate reported that the collection discovered by police included a mace, a blow gun, a battle ax, a collection of knives and daggers with various handles, a pair of swords including a "'Star Wars'-type sword," a Ruger model 357 Magnum pistol holster, a suspected M-150 and suspected M-200 explosives.
Police had responded to the Hope Street home on a report that 35-year-old Ahmed Abdelhamid had thrown a cell phone at his wife during an argument, the Stamford Advocate reported. He was charged with third-degree assault, risk of injury to a minor and disorderly conduct, according to the Stamford Advocate.
