A Lincoln businessman accused of assaulting a customer with a Samurai-style sword has been given probation.

The Lincoln Journal Star says 44-year-old Saad Al-Husseini was sentenced Tuesday to 18 months of probation for third-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

Al-Husseini was reportedly arguing over a money wire transaction with a customer in March 2011 when Al-Husseini chased him out of his store with a long knife.

Police say Al-Husseini hit the man several times on the thigh, lower leg and hand.

Al-Husseini initially told police he acted in self-defense when the man tried to rob him. He later pleaded guilty to the assault charge.
