ATLANTA -- A 33-year-old Georgia Tech alum who attacked a research fellow with a samurai sword on campus last week previously scuffled with the victim about a woman.

Five months ago at a dance on campus, Kshitij Shrotri, the alleged attacker, became incensed when he saw a woman he liked dancing alongside Samer Tawfik.

According to a Georgia Tech police report, Shrotri yelled in an undetermined foreign language and then pushed Tawfik several times.

Police say the unidentified woman considered filing a protection order against Shrotri, but decided that would only aggravate him.

That report last September notes that Shrotri, who earned a Ph.D. from Tech in 2008, had moved to Delaware.

Tawfik, underwent surgery at Grady Memorial Hospital following the attack.

This guy is an idiot. A real ninja would not have made the papers. Instead there would be an unsolved homicide.
