“I will be back and I’m going to hurt you too.”
An arrest affidavit states Pantalion Velasquez made the comment to his sister-in-law when he finished striking his brother repeatedly with a “double-bladed ax.”
The 38-year-old was charged Tuesday with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Metro police responded on April 13 to a residence on Greenbrier Road where the victim stated he and Velasquez, his brother, got into an argument in the garage.
When the victim told Velasquez to leave, officers said the suspect grabbed an ax and struck his brother multiple times all over his body.
The victim explained to investigators that he could not get away and thought he was going to die.
He did survive his injuries, police said.
The victim’s wife and nephew reportedly witnessed the attack.
Police said they were able to locate the ax used.
Bond for Velasquez was set at $15,000.
