RPD: Man broke grandmother’s neck, tried to set grandfather on fire

RICHMOND — Police have charged a Richmond man with two counts of attempted murder after he viciously attacked his grandparents Thursday afternoon.

Eddie A. Rose II, 22, of East Main Street was taken into custody by Richmond police after they discovered the injured couple in the street, according to an RPD report.

The report did not provide the victims’ names.

The officers responded to a call at 2:46 p.m. about a disturbance in the 1100 block of East Main Street.

Police determined that Rose had started physically assaulting his grandfather, then poured gasoline on the older man, the report stated.

When Rose began looking for a lighter, his grandmother tried to intervene. He threw the woman into a moving vehicle on East Main Street and then stomped her head several times, according to the RPD.

Both grandparents were taken to Baptist Health Richmond, and the grandmother was later taken to the University of Kentucky Medical Center. She suffered from a fractured skull, a broken nose, a broken neck and intracranial bleeding, the report stated.

The grandfather was treated at the Richmond hospital for a facial laceration, bruises and swelling, and a broken nose before he was released.

The couple's updated conditions were reported to the RPD late Friday morning, according to Assistant Chief Bob Mott.

Rose was taken to the Madison County Detention Center where he is being held under a $100,000 bond.
