BELTON — A man accused of stabbing an elderly man in Killeen was indicted by a Bell County grand jury on Wednesday.

Michael Leonard Poole, 40, was charged with aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury on Feb. 21.

Police officers arrived at a home in the 800 block of Highland Drive in reference to a stabbing. An elderly man was found with several stab wounds, police said.

The man said he was stabbed by Poole, according to the affidavit.

When police talked to neighbors, they learned one witness saw a man wearing a black baseball hat leave the elderly man’s house and jump over a fence.

An officer found Poole at a nearby home, the affidavit stated. Poole was wearing a black baseball hat. His sleeves were rolled up to his elbows, and his arms were “very wet, as if he had just rinsed himself off,” the affidavit stated.

When an officer patted Poole down, he found a knife in Poole’s right front pocket, police said.

Poole is held on $100,000 bond set by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke.

Mandi Jean Vincent, 38, of Harker Heights on a charge of injury to a child, intentional bodily injury.
