A Green County man remains in stable condition tonight after being attacked by a chainsaw during a home invasion. Kentucky State Police say early Saturday morning, 39-year-old Jeffrey Craig Dudgeon, broke into James and Gail Dowell's house with a chainsaw.

He then struck Mr. Dowell several times with the saw. Neighbors say Dudgeon was looking for the Dowell's daughter. Police say Dudgeon then fled to his father's house and stabbed his stepmother several times.

The stepmother suffered minor injuries. Police eventually found Dudgeon at a friend's house in Taylor County. He is being held at the Monroe County Detention Center without jail.
