The man who allegedly is responsible for a hatchet attack in Arlington last week is now officially facing charges. The Hancock County grand jury has indicted 37-year-old Brandon Pinks on charges of attempted murder, possessing criminal tools, tampering with evidence, and grand theft of a motor vehicle. Prosecutor Phil Riegle says there “absolutely be more charges” filed in the coming weeks.

Investigators say Pinks was dating Breanna Lemos. They believe the two got into an argument. Pinks also allegedly attacked Lemos’ daughter Arianna Teague. All three of them lived in a home at 219 West Main Cross Street in Arlington.

Pinks allegedly took Lemos’ car after the attack and drove to Hardin County. He remains in jail on a $250,000 bond.
