A Perry County man was recently indicted on assault charges that were allegedly committed last month.

According to court documents, Ted Ambrose, 44, of Busy, was indicted on charges of first-degree assault and being a felony offender in the second degree.

Ambrose’s indictment states that in August of this year, Ambrose allegedly cut Ellis Gibson in the arm with a machete, thereby causing serious physical injury to Gibson. Additionally, the indictment shows that Ambrose allegedly committed this felony after having previously been convicted of charges of receiving stolen property under $30,000 in August 2014.

Ambrose’s bail is set in the amount of $10,000, and he is scheduled to appear before Perry Circuit Court for his arraignment on Nov. 7. Ambrose is ordered to have no contact or communication with Gibson.

Editor’s note: An indictment is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.
