73-year-old John Anders had an altercation with Jeffrey Stewart, an employee at Group Home Nashville, at the Larkspur Road group home late February 20th. Stewart spoke with officers when they arrived and advised them that Anders had recently been informed that he was being evicted due to his frequent hostility toward other residents. Stewart told officers that Anders entered his bedroom later that night holding a pairing knife, stating he was going to cut him since he was evicting him, and swung the blade toward his throat. Anders held the blade against Stewart’s throat until he wrestled him off and called the authorities.  Anders was then taken into custody for aggravated assault.
