GRAPHIC: Machete-wielding man’s victims speak on attack
OKLAHOMA CITY – Police arrested the accused machete man Thursday afternoon.
Just hours earlier police said they found Michael Rogers’ car.
A brother, sister and neighbor said Rogers (Jasper Zan) attacked them with a machete and the neighbor has the wounds to prove it.
Rogers said he was just defending himself.
The 31-year-old man armed with a machete was on the run since the alleged attack Wednesday morning on the 3800 block of N.W. 51st St. near N. Portland Ave.
Police said Rogers is accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Hanna Stout, and vandalizing a car outside her house.
Neighbors said the man drove his car into a house across the street.
Neighbor Randall Love intervened and was confronted with a machete.
Covering his wound, Love described the moment his neighbor’s ex-boyfriend attacked him with the weapon.
“He came down instantly with a double-handed machete sweep,” he said.
Hanna Stout said, “Five minutes before he came over here he sent me a message on Facebook and said, ‘I don’t care. You’re worthless. I’m going to cut your head off.’”
Hanna’s brother, Mark Stout, said this isn’t the first violent situation with the man.
“I’m a little scared of the guy,” he said. “I just hope the police will do their job and put him away.”
Rogers responded to it all with an online video.
“Justice is what it was; I didn’t actually attack those people,” Rogers said. “They were throwing bricks at my car when I drove by.”
An actual attack or not, Hanna said Rogers has been stalking her for some time and she’s convinced he isn’t finished.
“I really think he might want to come kill all of us,” she said.
Rogers claims he wasn’t really going to hurt his ex and that he was after her current boyfriend.
“I just wanted to cut Michael up,” he said in the video
He posted his side of the story on YouTube.
