Police responded to a disturbance in Dededo on the morning of November 6. The victim said upon arriving home with his daughter, he observed his neighbor- Joaquin Guile holding a metal pipe and machete calling him to fight. Guile proceeded to yell "I'm going to cut your heart out!"

According to court documents, the victim said that Guile also threatened to come to his house during the night and kill his family. Officers eventually located Guile later that morning after he ran into the jungle holding a "sword."

After repeatedly instructing him to drop the sword, Guile finally complied and was taken into custody where he was charged with terrorizing, possession or use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony, and harassment.
