A Somerset man police say attacked a mother and son inside their home then escaped from the intensive care unit of a hospital is now behind bars.
A K-9 unit found Herbert Dugger. Police say Monday evening he attacked the two people inside the woman's Crane Street home with a hammer.
Dugger allegedly took off after the attack but later showed up at a hospital to be treated. He was admitted into the hospital's ICU but Tuesday morning nurses saw him running from the hospital. He was later located and is being held in the Pulaski County Detention Center.
In April 1995, Dugger was charged in the shooting death of Joseph Bryant. He was later found guilty of second-degree manslaughter.
