A Texas boy, aged six, is battling for his life following a severe assault in his home, reportedly carried out by his neighbor. The shocking incident took place in the early morning of September 11, leaving the local community stunned and the boy’s family dealing with the aftermath.
The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office was called to a disturbance at a home on Rock Mill Loop in Georgetown around 5 a.m. on the day of the incident. The suspect, identified as 39-year-old Daniel Logan, is alleged to have broken into his neighbor’s home and assaulted the child with a baseball bat.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, Logan forced entry into the house wielding a baseball bat and attacked two individuals, including the six-year-old boy. Both victims were immediately transported to local hospitals for medical attention. Logan is currently facing two first-degree felony charges: injury to a child and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a family member.
Local media outlet Fox-7 reported that Logan is also accused of attacking his 65-year-old mother, Cynthia Logan, with the same bat. Following the incident, a mental health assessment was ordered for Logan on September 12.
The young victim, Jeremy, is described as a bright and lively child with a promising future. The unprovoked attack has left him with serious injuries and an uncertain road to recovery. A GoFundMe page has been established by the child’s father, Arturo Diaz, and a family friend, Laila Dabbakeh, to assist with his medical expenses. The fundraising goal is set at $250,000.
Logan’s wife reportedly informed detectives that she woke up to loud noises on the morning of the incident. Unable to locate her husband, she noticed a hole in the fence between their homes and broken glass near the neighbor’s back patio door. She then reportedly heard Jeremy’s mother screaming.
Jeremy’s father, who requested anonymity, described his son as an active child who enjoyed jiu-jitsu, soccer, and painting. He also spoke fluent Chinese and was studying Chinese characters, played the piano, and was a role model to his younger brother.
Logan, who has no prior criminal record in Texas, could face up to 99 years in prison if found guilty of the charges. As the investigation continues, the community is rallying around Jeremy and his family, hoping for his full recovery.
