Deputies said after the man asked Schneider what he was doing, Schneider “charged at him with a large knife in one hand and a hammer in the other.”
The man was stabbed “numerous times” and hit by the hammer before he was able to run to a neighbor’s house and ask them to call 911, according to officials. Schneider left the house in his car, which was later found by deputies in an empty lot. After a search, authorities were able to find and arrest Schneider.
The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Schneider is facing an attempted murder charge.
