Lawrence man arrested for attempted attack

November 2, 2012


A Lawrence man was taken to jail on charges of disorderly conduct after he was accused of chasing another man with a weapon around 9 p.m. Thursday evening.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Craig Shanks said police were called to the 1100 block of East 13th Street after numerous complaints that a man, wielding either a knife, hatchet or baseball bat, was trying to attack another man. Police found the man whom witnesses had described and took him to jail on charges of disorderly conduct.

Shanks said police were unable to contact the victim.

I know this is probably just based on reports, but "either a knife, hatchet, or baseball bat" are quite diverse. Sounds like a weak witness testimony.

adam adam adam ... watch your use of language, you and the editors.

the attacker obviously didn't attempt but he did simply attack the victim with whatever sharp impliment it was. then, it would be accurate to say the attacker "attempted to assault" "attempted to stab" attempted to kabob" etc.

yes, one wonders about the members of the bum army. if you build it, they will come.

An easy mistake to make , It was a Swiss army bat.

Maybe he was reenacting a scene from Assassin's Creed III...

That complex is a dump. Poorly maintained and incompetent management. Almost constant police action there. The landlord trades rent for favors.
