Authorities aren't exactly sure what led to one person in Florida being attacked with a sword and another with a metal pole on Sunday. Just to warn you, some people might find this footage disturbing.

Police accuse 22-year-old Jovaughn Walker of carrying out the attacks. Surveillance tapes from the first attack appear to show a man hitting an 81-year-old man with a pole.

Another surveillance camera caught a vendor at a flea market being attacked with a sword. Both victims received medical treatment and are expected to be OK.

Police say this string of attacks began when Walker carjacked a pickup truck that morning. Walker faces charges for attempted murder, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, carjacking and possession of cannabis.
