(Newser) – Two men punching and kicking a guy on a Phoenix train a couple weeks ago got a little surprise—when a passenger threatened them with a Samurai sword, the Huffington Post reports. The Bushido vigilante, wearing a baseball cap and headphones, inched forward until the terrified attackers fled the light rail car. Naturally, another passenger recorded the whole thing on video.

"I was like, 'What the hell, who carries a sword?'" said Juan Vargas, the video man. "As soon as that guy pulled out the sword, everybody was like, 'Whoa.' It got really quiet and everybody was like, 'Okay, okay, I guess don't do nothing to get him mad or don't upset him.'" No one has yet identified the mysterious swordsman, but police are investigating.
