A Tulsa teenager used a sword he'd bought at Mayfest to defend himself during a home invasion Friday night.

Police say the 17-year-old was home alone at a residence in the 5200 block of South 36th West Avenue. Just before 11 p.m., officers say suspect Jeremy Wayne Olson kicked in part of the front door, reached in and unlocked it.

The victim ran into a back bedroom and grabbed a sword he purchased at Mayfest. As Olson entered the bedroom, the teen struck him in the head with the blade, according to police.

The 18-year-old Olson ran from the home and called 911, reporting he'd been shot. As emergency services responded to that call, police learned of the home invasion.

Olson is being held on a $20,000 bond for first degree burglary.
