LONDON — Police in Britain have apologized for using a stun gun to subdue a blind stroke victim mistakenly thought to be carrying a sword.

Lancashire Police Chief Stuart Williams said Wednesday police brought the victim to a local hospital to be checked out after they realized they had used the weapon against the wrong man.

He says police “deeply regret” the incident, which happened after police received multiple reports that a man was walking through the town of Chorley “armed with a samurai sword.”
