Man Faces Many Counts of South Carolina Criminal Justice
Last week, a man in Aiken, SC allegedly attacked his father, strangled a female victim, and then held himself “hostage” at knife point. He will now face South Carolina criminal justice.
Aaron Kranenberg, armed with a sword, attacked the two victims in a house on Poplar Place. Officers responded to a call about the fight between father and son, and when they arrived, the woman who answered the door said Kranenberg had tried to assault her.
The female victim, who has remained unnamed, said that she was watching a movie with Kranenberg in his bedroom when they began to have a deep discussion. Kranenberg, who had been drinking, became upset and would not let her leave his room. The woman screamed, causing Kranenberg’s father to run into the bedroom. Kranenberg attacked his father for interrupting, and when the woman tried to help, he strangled her, and punched her in the face several times. He forced her into the bedroom again, and locked the door until the police arrived on the scene, as though awaiting South Carolina criminal justice.
South Carolina Criminal Justice, Even for “Hostage”
When the police went into Kranenberg’s room, he stepped out of his closet with a knife to his throat, and would not drop the weapon until after the officers asked him to do so. According to the reports, the officers were able to negotiate with Kranenberg to get him to drop the blade. He tried to stab himself in the stomach, but the officers were able to stop him.
He was taken to a hospital, and a warrant was issued for him later. He will now face the South Carolina criminal justice system.
Officers later seized four swords, a set of sais (a Japanese weapon), six knives, and a crossbow with 10 arrows from Kranenberg’s room.
