Logan police arrested a patient at an assisted-living facility late Thursday for allegedly trying to kill a female worker.
Police say the 25-year-old patient at Northeastern Services, 581 W. 100 South, tried to strangle a woman who worked there. Police received word of the incident at 10:23 p.m. Thursday.
According to police, the man attacked the woman in his bedroom after becoming violent and suicidal. Another patient heard the commotion and called for help. A second worker at the facility then kicked down the door to the man's room and stopped the assault.
