PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - Two people were injured in Paducah Thursday night after a man assaulted them with a knife.

According to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department, deputies responded to 5025 Michael Drive around 7 p.m. and found 37-year-old Herbert E. Brown of Paducah on top of one of the victims trying to assault them for a second time.

Deputies were able to take Brown  into custody without incident.

Brown was later interviewed by detectives where he confessed to attacking the two victims.
