Dayton police responded on June 23 to the parking lot of an outdoor tennis court on Deweese Parkway after a 911 caller told dispatchers that a man attacked a woman with a machete.

The woman said she had a brief discussion with Douglas about a parking spot before the attack, according to an affidavit filed in Dayton Municipal Court.

Douglas hit the woman in the back and neck with the machete while it was still in its sheath, then took it out of its sheath and hit her on top of the head, leaving a large cut, according to documents.

He then fled with his dog in a brown vehicle, police said.

Officers said they identified Douglas based off a previous interview describing him, his dog and the car as well as using a partial license plate.

Douglas is held on a $50,000 in the Montgomery County Jail.
