(Scroll down for video) A man, who was high on drugs, went on a rampage, assaulting several people and a dog, according to police reports in Idaho.

Meridian Police said that a local 23-year-old man allegedly assaulted many people, including children and a man in a wheelchair.

Sean Carnell began his rampage on Wednesday morning with hitting a 15-year-old in the face several times in Tully Park and stealing a skateboard from another teen.

Meridian Police said he later kicked a dog in the leg and ribs near 8th Street and Delmar and walked away. Soon after, he attacked a construction worker with a shovel and hit him in the face and back, leaving the worker lying in a ditch.

After the attack on the construction worker, Carnell made his way into an apartment and assaulted a 36-year-old woman. The daughter and boyfriend of the woman threatened Carnell. That is when he decided to flee.

The 23-year-old then approached a 45-year-old in a wheelchair and push him down the street.
The Nampa Fire Department said Thursday that one of the victims of Carnell was a 16 year veteran of the force.

Officials arrested Carnell without incident in the 700 block of West Pine Street, seven minutes after the first 911 call. Officers believe Carnell was under the influence of illegal narcotics. Police anticipate more charges and are asking the public for any help with information about Wednesday’s events.

In total, Carnell faces six felony charges and five misdemeanor charges related to the alleged assault.
