A Radcliff man was arrested Tuesday night behind North Hardin High School after reportedly stealing a vehicle earlier in the day by stabbing the vehicle driver nearly two dozen times.

De'Andre Jenkins, 23, faces a number of charges, including attempted murder.

According to an arrest citation, Jenkins approached a vehicle with a driver in it on Doris Way in Radcliff at 7:01 p.m. Tuesday and then entered the vehicle and began stabbing the driver in the neck, face and chest areas approximately 20 times.

The driver began to yell for help and honk the vehicle horn and managed to get out of the vehicle before Jenkins reportedly got into it and drove away.

Jenkins then was found inside of the vehicle at 11:14 p.m. behind NHHS and arrested.

According to the citation, when Jenkins drove the vehicle onto NHHS property, he also struck a parked car causing damage.

When Radcliff police brought him to the Hardin County Detention Center, he then stuck a staff member at the jail in the face, causing injuries, according to the citation.

There is no information at this time on the condition of the stabbing victim.

Jenkins also is charged with first-degree robbery; theft by unlawful taking of a motor vehicle more than $500 and less than $10,000; third-degree assault and second-degree criminal mischief.

He is being held in lieu of a $250,000 cash bond in the Hardin County Detention Center.
