Sixty two-year-old Lincoln Charley, who was attacked by a mentally ill man in Choiseul on Sunday, October 19, is now nursing his injuries at home.

Charley was released from St. Jude Hospital yesterday.

Charley, who related his story, said the man came to his home for a glass of water. While attending to his need, Charley said the man began to threaten him, then launched an attack.

He explained that the man then forced himself upon him and began hitting him with a few stones in his head and about his body.

Charley said after the attack, the mentally ill man then took his rage out on a few vehicles that were parked on the road.

After hearing the commotion, residents in the area intervened and bounded the attacker who was later arrested.

Emergency services responded to the scene and transported Charley to the hospital. He sustained multiple wounds to the head and bruises about his body.

Charley, who is a former construction worker, has been at home for about seven years after he suffered stroke.
