A Racine County man is in jail on charges that he attacked his mother with a knife and a machete, the sheriff's office said Saturday in a news release.
Deputies responded about 6:20 p.m. Saturday to the 600 block of Stephanie Street in the Village of Rochester for a report of an intoxicated man who went after his mother with a machete and stabbed her in the leg with a butterfly knife.
The suspect then left the residence and sat in the backyard where he was taken into custody without incident, the sheriff's office said.
Edward Louis Esposito of Rochester was transported to the Racine County Jail and is being held on multiple charges, including attempted homicide, battery-domestic violence and first-degree reckless endangering safety, the sheriff's office said.
