According to reports from NBC's Bay Area affiliate and ABC7 KGO-TV, police were called to a home in San Jose early monday morning after several people reported a man was standing outside the building with an assault rifle. The suspect got into his car and fled when he heard the sirens approaching.

Police pulled him over a few blocks away, but instead of going peacefully and fully-clothed he exited his vehicle completely naked and brandishing what appears to be a samurai sword, all while yelling, "You're going to have to kill me!" He's now pacing back and forth and police are trying to convince him to put down the sword. The suspect's assault rifle and car were secured by police.
