CINCINNATI (AP) — Authorities say an Ohio man stabbed another man in the eyes with a steak knife and an antenna, a day after he had beaten someone else and stolen his cellphone.
Police say 33-year-old Eugene Dase of Cincinnati stabbed the man early on New Year's Eve. Media outlets report the man was in critical condition at a hospital.
Dase of Cincinnati appeared in a Hamilton County courtroom Monday on charges of felonious assault and robbery. He laughed and swore at the judge during the hearing, and the judge ordered a mental health evaluation.
Dase's lawyer, Greg Cohen, says his client has mental health issues and has denied the charges against him. Dase's bond was set at $950,000, and he's being held in the Hamilton County jail.
