Cookeville Man Reports Ax Attack

Cookeville police are continuing to investigate an incident in which a masked man began beating on the door of a local residence with an ax while the person inside was calling authorities. Police say it happened last week at a home on CC Camp Road when a man heard a knock on his door and opened it to find a masked man standing there. According to reports, the victim quickly slammed the door shut and called police, and the masked man then began beating on the door with an ax. But authorities say the man was gone by the time officers arrived. The door was heavily damaged, and extra police patrols have been ordered for the area, but police have not said whether they have developed any suspects in the case.
