Man Suspected of Attacking Women with Hatchet Turns Himself In
OKLAHOMA CITY – A man wanted in a violent attack involving a hatchet turned himself in to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol Sunday afternoon.
Warr Acres police said three women went to Justin Loy's home Saturday morning around 8:30 a.m. when, for an unknown reason, he attacked them with a hatchet.
Neighbors called police after hearing a disturbance at Loy's home.
When police arrived, they discovered the women had escaped and driven themselves to a local hospital. The three victims suffered non-life threatening injuries.
"All three women had numerous cut marks, in the head, arms, back," said Warr Acres Police Major Hugh Osborne.
Officers recovered the hatchet at Loy's home, but were not able to locate the 30-year-old until he turned himself into OHP headquarters in Ardmore.
Warr Acres detectives arrested him at the Carter County Jail and are planning to transfer Loy to the Oklahoma County Jail on charges of three counts of assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to commit murder.
