However, these days of Coronavirus shutdown are heavy upon us, being caged for a long time doesn’t suit humans. But we have to cope with the situation, but a man did the opposite of what’s been ordered to do.
A homeless man was indicted with two counts of murder Sunday after he assaulted a husband and wife with a machete because he was angry over shutdowns during the coronavirus pandemic.
Kelvin Edwards, 35, randomly assaulted the couple as they expected as customers inside the office of a Public Storage warehouse.
He told the law enforcement that he was frustrated by the coronavirus pandemic and that he could not enter the Nashville Rescue Mission, so he showed his anger in a rough bit on people he did not know. Rescue Mission, an establishment that helps homeless people, has remained open to individuals without shelter during the pandemic.
Kevin Craft, 55, and Leanne Craft, 50, are in critical condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center after six police officers applied various tourniquets. Policemen said Edwards proceeded to strike the victims, even after they were on the floor badly bleeding.
According to the release, Edwards had a case at the storage facility, which presumably contained the machete. Police received the dispatched call at 2:47 p.m. After the assault, Edwards walked out of the storage facility, threw the machete down, and stood in the street with his hands raised.
Police said Edwards possessed an Arkansas driver’s license with a Rock address. But he has been in Nashville since at least 2016 when he arrested.
In 2017, he convicted of offensive demolition. While in jail, Edwards was charged with intentionally spitting on two Davidson County Sheriff’s delegates, for which he was sentenced on two counts of assault.
