Hernando County deputies say Frederick Albritton Jr. went on a rampage with a sword, stabbed his bro

HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla - "He is going to kill us with a sword."

Those are the words 911 dispatchers heard from a Brooksville woman Saturday night, an arrest report states.

Hernando County deputies dispatched to 384 Korbus Road in Brooksville found a man with a wound to his chest.

Deputies say the woman who called 911 reportedly told authorities she lives at the home with her boyfriend.  She said it was her boyfriend's birthday and she was celebrating the occasion along with her boyfriend's brother Frederick Albritton Jr. 

The woman said during the party she got into an argument with her boyfriend.

Albritton Jr., 51, apparently became upset the couple was arguing, armed himself with a sword and then raised the sword to the woman's head and threatened to hurt her, deputies said.

The woman's boyfriend got in between her and his brother, deputies said.

When the couple attempted to leave the house, an arrest report states that Albritton Jr. accused his brother of trying to leave without paying his share of the rent.

Deputies say at this point, Albritton Jr. walked outside and smashed his brother's 2000 black Hyundai with the sword and caused $1,000 in damage.

Albritton's brother was inside his bedroom and yelled out the window at his brother to stop, deputies say. 

That's when Albritton Jr. smashed the bedroom window with a sword and stabbed his brother in the chest, an arrest report states.

Deputies say Albritton Jr. walked back into the home, grabbed his brother's girlfriend by the throat and threw her to the ground.  

The woman said she attempted to called 911 but Albritton Jr. grabbed the phone from her hand.

Albritton Jr. reportedly took off running from the residence and hid in bushes nearby.

Deputies arrested Albritton Jr. and said he admitted he'd been drinking and took Xanax.  He reportedly told deputies because of what he ingested he could not remember much of the evening. 

Albritton Jr. was treated at Brooksville Regional Hospital and then taken to the Hernando County Jail.

He is now facing a slew of charges including aggravated assault, aggravated battery, tampering with a witness, domestic battery and criminal mischief.
