A 29-year-old Bloomington man was arrested after he attacked a young couple at Kroger.
Michael Morgan faces preliminary charges of aggravated battery.
Police apprehended the suspect, Michael Morgan, after they received complaints that Morgan had attacked and harassed a young couple as they left the Kroger at Second Street and College Avenue, said Sgt. Jeff Canada, reading from a police report.
The male victim told police that Morgan had been calling him names and bothering him as he left Kroger, and that Morgan then hit him in the face with a closed fist. As the victim began to walk toward his fiancé, Morgan began to harass her and call her names, threatening to hit her as well. The female victim told police she was afraid of what Morgan would do to her when he then spit on her and threw a sandwich at her, while calling her names.
The suspect was taken into custody by officer Jason Shaevitz. After being read his rights, the suspect told officers “it was the demon and the devil,” according to the police report being read by Canada. Officer Chaevitz said Morgan continued with the explanation that the devil was causing the problem and that the victims were “going to burn,” according to the police report.
