The man who had been attacked told officers he did not know why his brother had attacked him. He had walked into the living room when his brother jumped off a couch and grabbed him. The man had red marks on his neck and upper chest from the attack.

Both brothers left the house after the incident. Police arrested the alleged attacker in a nearby field after a short search of the neighborhood.

The officer noted in his report that he recognized the address and home from two previous calls of fights between the two brothers.
