Jogger fights off attacker using martial arts training

An 18-year-old Florida man was arrested on Monday after he ambushed a jogger who used his martial arts training to fight off his attacks.

Broward County Sheriff’s investigators say Logan William Smith told authorities he first noticed the jogger passing by six weeks ago. 

On January 17th, Smith hid behind a light pole and waited for the jogger to pass by. 

Armed with a rubber mallet, an aerosol deodorant can and a bed sheet, Smith threw a belt from a robe around the joggers neck as he passed by. 

The jogger utilized his material arts training to free himself, and held Smith down until law enforcement officers arrived and arrested him. 

The jogger was not injured.

Deputy Carson Hendren detailed Smith’s plan to kill the jogger in his arrest report, writing “he further planned to place the victim’s body into his closet where the defendant stated no one would know and the defendant could have the victim’s body all to himself.”

Smith was charged with attempted murder.
