LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A grand jury has returned an indictment against the man accused of attacking two people with a machete at a Transylvania University coffee shop.
Nineteen-year-old Mitchell Adkins faces 10 charges including assault, terroristic threatening, resisting arrest and menacing.
Lexington Police Sgt. Jervis Middleton says Adkins entered the building with a bag of "various edged weapons."
Student Tristan Reynolds said a man entered and said "the day of reckoning has come," then asked someone about their political affiliation. When the answer was Republican, the assailant said "you are safe."
Adkins is a former student at the university in Lexington.
He's currently at Eastern State Hospital undergoing a mental evaluation.
