Police say a security guard at a Oklahoma City apartment complex used nunchucks to take down a man wielding two steak knives.

Oklahoma City Police Department reports show at approximately 6:30 p.m. June 8 officers were called to a disturbance at an apartment complex at 447 Tinker Diagonal.

Police arrived on scene and found a security guard holding 31-year-old Jerome Thompson on the ground. Thompson was then placed into handcuffs and officers spoke to the security guard. The man stated he was working to hand out pamphlets at the complex stating that Thompson had been banned from the property.

Thompson had allegedly been staying with residents at the complex and having issues with drugs. While delivering the pamphlets the man noticed Thompson coming towards him with a steak knife in each hand. Thompson reportedly stated he was "not leaving" and that he was going to kill the security guard. He then began swinging the knives towards the guard.

The guard pulled out his nunchucks and struck Thompson, who then fell to the ground. The two began to scuffle on the ground. After an altercation, the security guard was able to take control and hold Thompson on the ground while bystanders called the police.

Thompson faces complaints of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and trespassing.
