What a cold and fowl act!
YPSILANTI, Mich. -- Police said an Ypsilanti man is accused of stabbing his mother with a fork and hitting another woman over the head with a frozen chicken.
Frederick McKaney, 40, was arraigned in a Jackson courtroom on Thursday on two felony assault charges, one count of assault and battery and one count of resisting an officer.
"He stabbed his mother in the back of the neck when she refused to give him money, and then, an hour later, he attacked a neighbor woman with a chicken," Jackson County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Mark Blumer told the Ann Arbor news.
Police said McKaney went to his mother's house and demanded money. When she refused, he stabbed her and took off on his bicycle, police said.
A short time later, he encountered two other women talking on the sidewalk on Woodbridge Street.
The woman said he said something nasty to them and hit one of them over the head with 10 pounds of frozen chicken.
The woman went to the hospital and got stitches in her head.
McKaney's mother suffered minor injuries from the stabbing.
