OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City man had his nose cut off during a bizarre sword attack at a local bar.
Police say the manager of a small bar near Northwest 10th and Rockwell attacked several customers with a sword.
Police say Zapata thought the victim and his friends were making too much noise.
Zapata supposedly got mad, grabbed the 34-inch sword, chased the men outside and slashed one man in the face.
One witness thinks the victim is lucky to be alive.
"He was scared. He cried, 'Oh my nose, he cut my nose,'" says Israel Ramos.
"This individual was seriously injured. He was slashed on the shoulder, hand and on his face," said MSgt. Gary Knight.
In addition to the assault charge, Zapata faces a lesser citation for destroying private property.
We did go to the victim's home but no one answered the door.
His friend says doctors have used pieces of skin from his ear and forehead to try and fashion a new nose.
