Man indicted in shower attack

RICHMOND — A Madison grand jury has indicted a Richmond man on a charge of first-degree burglary in connection with an attack earlier this year on another man inside a Smith Village home.

Scott Slone, 32, faces a potential sentence of 10 to 20 years in prison if he is convicted of the charge.

Slone is accused of entering the home of Lacey Damrell on Aug. 28 and attacking Chris Mullins.

Mullins told the police he was in the shower when Slone unexpectedly appeared in the bathroom and started assaulting him, according to a Richmond police report.

Mullins said Slone struck him several times all over his body, and then fled, according to the RPD.

Mullins was taken to the Baptist Health Richmond hospital and received stitches to close two lacerations in his head. He also suffered cuts to his legs and bruising to his back and arms, according to the RPD.

Slone was found at The Jungle Bar on Health Street a short time after the attack and taken into custody. He was released Oct. 9 from the Madison County Detention Center.

First-degree burglary in Kentucky is defined as unlawfully entering a person’s home with the intent to commit a crime and causing serious physical injury to an inhabitant.
