Officials reported that police in Riverside, situated 55 miles east of Los Angeles, were informed of an incident involving a medieval dismemberment after multiple residents contacted 911 to report a severed hand found on a downtown neighborhood sidewalk at approximately 10:30 p.m.
As per the police, a man who lacked a hand arrived at a nearby hospital shortly after and informed the doctors that someone had inflicted the injury by using a sword to swing at him.
