Police say a man armed with metal bar or pipe has been accused of attacking three fellow residents at a South Texas assisted living facility.
The Cameron County Sheriff's Department says 28-year-old Brandon Schmitt of Harlingen was in custody Monday on three counts of burglary of a habitation. Bond has been set at $150,000.
Jail records did not list an attorney for Schmitt, who was arrested Friday at Villa Residential Care in Harlingen. Details on why he lives at the facility weren't released.
KRGV-TV reports all three victims are women.
Police say the victims were transported to a hospital. Further details on their conditions were not immediately available.
A message left with the assisted living facility was not immediately returned Monday to The Associated Press.
