Man Assaults His 88 Year Old Grandparents

An Assault over the weekend sends a St Clair man to jail and sends his grandparents to the hospital. On Saturday night St Clair police were called to the one hundred block of West Springfield road for the report of an assault in progress. When they arrived they found 31 year old James Robert Capehart, his father and grandmother with injuries to the head. Capehart was being held to the floor by his 66 year old father who had obvious signs of head trauma. According to statements Capehart went into a rage and began throwing furniture around the house. He then began striking his 88 year old grandmother on the head with a .38 caliber pistol as she was attempting to flee down the hallway carrying Capehart's eleven month old child. He also repeatedly struck his 88 year old grandfather with the pistol. The victims were transported to an area hospital where they were treated and later released. Officers later seized drug paraphernalia and marijuana from the residence. Capehart was charged with three counts of Felony Assault and Additional charges are being sought for endangering the welfare of the child, and the illegal substances located at the residence.
