The man accused of attacking his mother with a meat tenderizer in Walpole was found and arrested in Vermont, police said.

Walpole police had been searching for Crowley since Wednesday night when around 7 p.m. they said he allegedly was involved in an assault and battery with a knife in Common Street’s 500 block. He took off on foot in a dark Fila jumpsuit, they said, leading to a manhunt.

While police originally said the weapon used was a knife, multiple news outlets said police later clarified that it was a meat tenderizer — and the victim was his mother.
