PORTLAND, Ore., May 19 (UPI) -- An Oregon woman's car was attacked last week by a 30-year-old man who told police that he was battling "the evil Morgoth."

Morgoth is an evil character created by J.R.R. Tolkien who is featured in the "Lord of the Rings" books.

Konrad Bass was allegedly high on LSD when he used a sword to attack a woman's car and puncture it. Bass was wearing chain-mail with a helmet and carrying a shield during the attack, but the woman was apparently unable to recognize his costume and told a 911 dispatcher that "a pirate" was attacking her car.

Bass told police he was a "high-elf engaged in the battle with the evil Morgoth," not a pirate, according to KATU. He also had a staff on him at the time of the attack.

Paramedics brought Bass to the hospital after the incident and he now faces charges of disorderly conduct, criminal mischief and menacing, KPTV reported.
