PORTAGE — A man was taken into custody after his father was seriously injured in an incident involving a "Samurai sword-type" of weapon, Police Chief Troy Williams said.

The Portage SWAT Police Team forced entry into the family's home in the 5800 block of McCasland Avenue early Saturday morning and arrested the son without incident, Williams said.

The father was transported to the hospital after suffering serious injuries. The son was not injured, Williams said.

"This is another great example of good work by our officers," Williams said about the police department's quick handling of the situation.
