A Louisville, Kentucky man has been arrested after witnesses say he bludgeoned and robbed a man.
During the early morning hours on March 7th police were called to the Chickasaw neighborhood, specifically to the 4200 block of Grand Avenue, for an assault in progress.
According to WDRB, 31-year-old Damien Carter hit the victim more than 15 times with a rock. The witness said Carter also stomped on the victim's head. Carter was standing over the unconscious victim, who was not breathing, when police arrived.
The victim was taken to the hospital "with unknown injuries" according to the arrest report. There's no word yet on the victim's current condition.
Police found the victim's driver's license and prescription medicine bottle in Carter's pocket. According to the arrest report, Carter told police he saw the victim passed out in his car, opened the door and took his keys and pills. Police say that Carter and the victim do know each other but have not disclosed how.
Carter, who is known to have a violent past, was charged with assault and robbery. His bond was set at $25,000 cash, and the judge ordered him to remain on home incarceration if that bond is posted.
We're trying to figure out why a man, with a known violent past, was allowed to get house arrest when he nearly killed someone? This is unbelievable!
If convicted, Carter faces a minimum of five years in prison.
