That confession has since been taken off YouTube. News 9 did talk with that neighbor on Wednesday, who did have to undergo stitches on his arm from that machete attack. He tells News 9 Rogers had been stalking his ex-girlfriend and causing problems in the area and was wearing a gas mask during the Halloween incident.

We know police were out looking for Rogers early Thursday morning around Coronado Elementary, near NW 59th and Tulsa. At one point the school was placed on lockdown as a precaution.

Now News 9 has learned Rogers is facing a complaint of assault with a dangerous weapon for that attack.
