    "I had the sword extended. But that was all," he said.

    Man mistook porn movie scream for rape; charged for 'rescue' effort with sword

    OCONOMOWOC, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin man said he broke into an apartment with a cavalry sword because he thought he heard a woman being raped but the sound was from a pornographic movie his upstairs neighbour was watching.

    "Now I feel stupid," said James Van Iveren, who has been charged in the case. "This really is nothing, nothing but a mistake."

    A criminal complaint said the neighbour told police Van Iveren pounded on the door and kicked it open without warning Feb. 12, damaging the frame and lock.

    "Where is she?" Van Iveren demanded, thrusting the sword at the neighbour, the complaint said.

    "Where is she?"

    The neighbour told police Van Iveren became increasingly aggressive as he repeated the question, insisting he had heard a woman being raped. The complaint said, with the sword pointed at him, the neighbour led Van Iveren through the apartment, opening closet doors to prove he was alone.

    The neighbour later played for police the part of the DVD he believed Van Iveren heard downstairs.

    Van Iveren, 39, of Oconomowoc, was charged with criminal trespass, criminal damage and disorderly conduct, all while using a dangerous weapon, and is due in court March 5. Together, the misdemeanour counts carry a maximum sentence of 33 months in jail.

    Van Iveren said Tuesday he heard a woman "screaming for help," grabbed the sword, bounded up the stairs, kicked in the apartment door and confronted the man who lived there.

    "I intended to hold it behind my back and knock. But I froze and instead, what happened happened," he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel newspaper.

    Contesting his neighbour's account, Van Iveren said he didn't look anywhere in the apartment except the front room and he never threatened the neighbour with the sword.

    "I had the sword extended. But that was all," he said.

    Van Iveren, who lives with his mother in the downstairs apartment, said he did not call police when he heard the noises because he does not have a telephone. He said he barely knew the upstairs tenant.

    Police seized Van Iveren's sword, which he said was a family heirloom.

          After living with your mother for 39 years, I bet you'll jump at the slightest chance just to feel alive.

            this is why apartments suck so much. You can hear every damn thing. My cousin said his alarm wakes his neighbors up for crying out loud.

              my experience with apartments is that the tenants are always uptight and go off over the smallest thing. from parking in their spot for a minute to getting your mail.

                From my experience neighbours in apartments can be too touchy over things.

                Wether it's sobbing all night at an ever increasing volume,

                Sitting in your car with the headlights pointing into their window tracing them around the appartement with a laser pen,

                or rumaging around their rubbish bins sniffing discarded swimwear.

                    The guy tryed to help someone he thought was in trouble, he should pay to fix the neighbors' door and say he's sorry. The guy shouldn't go to jail.

                      So you'd be fine with it if somebody busted down your door and forced you to search through your house at the point of a weapon because they thought you were doing something illegal?
