MILLCREEK, Utah (KSL) -- In Millcreek, Utah, a man with a samurai sword, along with several other neighbors, helped chase away an assailant who attacked a woman he had apparently been stalking, according to police.

Just after 7 a.m., Grant Eggertsen assaulted a 35-year old woman on her doorstep by sneaking up on her, according to Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal.

After assaulting the woman, Eggersten allegedly stole the woman's keys and tried to enter her home.

She then took the opportunity to run away, yelling for help, Hoyal said.
