Atlanta, GA — A knife-wielding man has been scaring Kirkwood residents and visitors of late, who have taken to calling him the Machete Man, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.
But the man told Fox 5 his public knife-wielding routines are religious rituals. His mother told Fox 5 her son doesn’t have a mental illness.
The man told Fox 5 that he’s training to become an angel. He’s accused of living in a home that’s not his.
“[He] is accused of being a squatter by Invitation Homes management,” Fox 5 reported. “They told [the Atlanta Police Department] they own the house on Hosea Williams Drive, not him. Invitation Homes filed to evict him in July, but the pandemic has slowed the process.”
