Man with knife attacks another man, slashes tires

A 30-year old Logan man has been charged with attacking another man with a knife and slashing vehicle tires in the area of 550 West 1800 North in Logan. Lt. Rod Peterson says police were called to the area early Sunday morning to find Jason B. Welch extremely intoxicated and belligerent. Police reports state the residents came home after trying to locate Welch and found him cutting up their welcome mat with a knife. Welch and one of the home occupants got into a fight and were both cut. They were taken to the hospital. Peterson says later that morning police received reports of slashed tires in that area and connected the slashings to Welch. After being released from the hospital Welch was taken to jail and charged with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, and intoxication.
