‘He’s a good kid. He must have snapped, or got high or something’
One neighbor, who didn’t give her name, described the 22 year old as an uncle.
‘He’s a good kid. He must have snapped or maybe he got high or something,’ she said of the assailant who has since been taken into custody.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the attacker had a history of mental health issues.
