WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — A central Kentucky man claimed to be a cannibal and threatened to eat a police officer who attempted to arrest him, authorities said.
The Winchester Sun reported thatBrandon Hocker, 25, made the statement last week while being picked up on charges that he stabbed his girlfriend in Winchester. Hocker is scheduled for arraignment Monday on charges of second-degree assault and terroristic threatening.
Police say Hocker stabbed his girlfriend multiple times, then left her apartment on the night of April 30. Officers found him the next morning.
During the arrest, police say, Hocker looked at Officer Christine Matthews and said "that he was a cannibal and that he was going to put her on a plate and eat her."
Matthews was unhurt during the arrest.
