MAYPORT NAVAL STATION —
Jacob Jaquett was startled as he was trying to help a friend move in Mayport. He saw a naked man with a 3 to 4 foot sword.
“I was honestly kind of scared because I didn't know what he had with him or what was going on,” Jaquett said.
He says the man charged at people and screamed at them, as seen in viewer-submitted video.
Action News called the sheriff’s office multiple times to get more information.
Officials could only say there was a call to service at the complex and couldn't tell us anything else.
Jaquett says other members of the complex were able to get the man to put the sword down.
“Luckily a man was there and he subdued the guy and got him to drop the sword, and tackled him to the ground and the cops came,” Jaquett said.
