Vegas man held in stabbing of great-grandfather
Bail is set at $100,000 for a Las Vegas man who was arrested early Monday morning after he allegedly stabbed his great-grandfather with a knife.
Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies and East Fork paramedics responded to a report of a gunshot victim on Slate Road in Topaz Ranch Estates.
When deputies arrived they found Bradley Endsley Jr., 20, inside the home holding a knife.
As deputies issued orders to Endsley, the victim, an 82-year-old man pulled into the driveway bleeding from a stab wound. The man told deputies that he was attacked by Endsley, and managed to escape before deputies arrived, Sgt. Pat Brooks said.
Deputies forced their way into the home and placed Endsley into custody for attempted murder.
The reason for the attack is still being investigated. No one else was injured, Brooks said.
Medics treated the victim, who was flown to Renown Regional Medical Center where he underwent surgery.
Endsley is scheduled to appear in East Fork Justice Court today.
