​Fuck rock, paper, scissors: we're all for knife, frying pan and banjo. 

Update: Tuesday, September 14, 3:51PM:  We've found the name of the knife-and-frying-pan wielder: Alexander L. Hilton, age 21. He's been charged with aggravated assault and disorderly conduct. But the question still remains: What band were they arguing about?

Monday night in Overland Park, a man was attacked by a guy wielding two classic weapons: a knife and a frying pan. The dude swung his banjo at the knife-wielder's head. 

Guess who won?

Here's the report on what went down:

Attacked by a man wielding a frying pan and a knife, an Overland Park man swung his banjo.

Police say the banjo blow to the head stopped the assailant, who was treated for a cut and is now in jail awaiting charges.

The incident happened about 9 p.m. Monday at an apartment in the 7600 block of Shawnee Mission Parkway, police said.

The two 21-year-old men were drinking and arguing about a band when one of them grabbed the kitchen weapons and attacked, police said.

The victim happened to have banjo in hand and used it in self defense, they said.

The smell of alcohol was prevalent, police said.

Your musician's self-defense tip for the day: when it all goes to shit, grab a banjo.
