It's pretty sad when a story like this comes from your hometown. Assault charges have been filed against Aaron Joshua Hendrickson after he allegedly tried to steal an 8 year old boy's toys, and then stabbing the child's father.

WDIO has the full story, but the gist of it is that Hendrickson was taking the boys toys away, when the father told him to stop. Then Hendrickson "freaked out," pulled a knife and swung it at the father, cutting his finger.  The suspect then fled, but came back again with the knife a second time. He then ran off into the woods, but was tracked shortly after by a K9 unit.

This all took place on the 500 block of 1st Avenue South. It's hard to believe that a 38 year old man would steal the kid's toys. Was he on drugs? Is there a mental health illness here? There's got to be some reason behind it, but it's still a scary situation for a parent to think of. Bail was set at $35,000 and he luckily remains in custody.
