Sherman police say they have a man in custody, accused of going on a spree of assault over the weekend.

Police say the first call came from Odneal Street near Hazlewood.

While they where investigating there, another call came in just down the road at the Eastside Gardens apartments.

"When we woke up, he was kicking on the door screaming 'help help my mom is in there'," neighbor Dylan Terry said.

Terry lives next door to the apartment police say was broken into Sunday around 8 a.m.

He didn't know at the time that police were just down the road investigating an assault that had happened just an hour before, involving the same man.

"They located a victim with a stab wound, and also had been assaulted with a baseball bat during an attempted sexual assault," Sherman police Sgt. Brett Mullen said.

That victim was hospitalized, but will survive.

Sherman Police said their suspect, David Henderson, went to the Eastside Gardens apartments after his first victim called police.

"As soon as we got up to the door we saw the guy inside," Terry said.

Terry said he and his wife woke up to his neighbor's son screaming, trying to get inside his mom's unit.

"Nobody could kick it in, nobody could get in so he went and got a hammer from another neighbor and busted the window," Terry said.

That's when Terry said Henderson ran outside, and began fighting his neighbor's son right as police pulled up.

Henderson is charged with assaulting both the woman inside the apartment and her son, with items around their house.

He was also charged with the assault that happened an hour before.

"It's just not something I was expecting at 8 o'clock in the morning," Terry said.

Sherman police said the attacks were random, and Henderson did not know any of the victims.

They say he was under the influence of narcotics when he was arrested.

Henderson is being held in the Grayson County jail on a $82,500 bond.
