A Lockland man was charged on Wednesday after police told that he injured a 13-year-old boy while an aggravated burglary.
30-year-old Michael Horsley is now being detained on a $250,000 bond with 3 counts of intensified burglary, all first-degree crimes, and 2 counts of felonious attack, both second-degree offenses.
Horsley made his way into a house on Fourth Street in the Central Business District by hitting in the house’s air conditioning window unit on Nov. 19, according to court records.
Once inside the house, Horsley pushed a 13-year-old boy into a wall and then tried to attack the boy’s mother, court documents pronounce. The boy’s mother was sneaking in the basement of the house with a knife while she described the incident to 911. She informed dispatchers Horsley also attacked her teenage daughter.
“He Has been frightening me all day!” the woman wrote of Horsley in the witness report. “I was in the basement with a knife scared.”
The boy was brought to the hospital for a head wound. Police told that he was possibly suffered a concussion. The woman was safe.
Horsley was held a week after the incident, on Nov. 25. He was set to arrive in court Thursday morning, according to court documents.
