ATTEMPTED MURDER ARREST
B/M Allen B. Croskey, DOB 10/11/58, was arrested for attempting to murder his 87 year old father by striking him in the head with a pipe and a sledge hammer.
On today's date, 03/19/14, officers responded to a disturbance at a SW address. Upon arrival, EMS personnel were already on scene rendering medical aid to an 87 year old, black male victim. Upon locating a subject in the yard of the residence, Officer Marcum approached to see if he was a witness to the incident. The subject, identified as B/M Allen B. Croskey, DOB 10/11/58, advised he had struck his father in the head with a pipe. Croskey was immediately secured and transported to OPD headquarters to speak with Major Crimes Detective Mathew Steckman.

Croskey told Det. Steckman that he'd come home from eating at the soup kitchen this morning to find his father in the carport. His father yelled at him about breaking the vacuum cleaner and, while holding a sledge hammer in his hands, told Croskey to leave. Croskey advised that he'd gone to the neighbor's house and gotten a piece of pipe from a chain link fence. He then returned to the residence and struck his father in the head with the pipe. One his father was on the ground and knocked out, Croskey picked up the sledge hammer that had fallen to the ground and struck his father in the face with it twice. Believing his father to be dead, Croskey got rid of the pipe and sledge hammer, dragged his father's body into some bushes and covered it with blankets.

The victim was trauma alerted and taken immediately into surgery. He is now out of surgery and in critical condition.

Croskey was charged with Attempted Murder - 2nd Degree and transported to the Marion County Jail, where he is being held without bond.
