A Ventura man is facing assault with a deadly weapon charges after police say he got into a confrontation with his 18-year-old son, and then assaulted him with a sword.

Ventura Police were called to the 2500 block of Zuni Court around 12:30 Sunday (10/9), by reports of a domestic disturbance.  Police say Antonio Gutierrez confronted his son about not doing chores, and as the conversation became heated, grabbed a four foot long sword.  Investigators say when he tried to push his son back with the weapon, the teen grabbed the blade to protect himself, and suffered a severe laceration.  The wound wasn’t life threatening.
