Two brothers involved in a swordfight inside a Hammel Houses apartment on Thursday were busted and treated for their wounds.
It was a swordfight worthy of the movies, but cops arrested the brothers involved in the fight for stabbing each other with the large sword, law enforcement sources say.
Cops responding to a call at an apartment in the Hammel Houses on Rockaway Beach Boulevard at Beach 84 Street at about 9:50 a.m. on Thursday morning, found the two brothers, identified in court papers as Jamel Murreld, 34 and his brother, Justin, 23 both suffering from stab wounds.
While there was no official explanation for the sword fight, some locals said that the fight started as a lark and quickly became dangerous.
Jamel was stabbed in the back and his younger brother suffered a large wound over his left eye.
Both men were transported by EMS to Jamaica Hospital. They were treated for their wounds and then transported to Queens Central Booking, where they are awaiting arraignment on charges of assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
Police officials said that they recovered the large, bloody sword in the apartment.
