Suspect accused of attacking bakery owner, 75-year-old man doesn't show up for court
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The man charged with the attack on a good Samaritan who runs a popular bakery was scheduled to appear in court Monday morning, but when the time came to appear before a judge, he was a no show.
According to Fredrick Blackshire's attorney, he would not cooperate with the doctor giving the mental health exam that was court ordered during his last court appearance.
He also told deputies at the jail that he refused to go to court. The judge ordered him to inpatient care to be evaluated. Jen Clark was getting into her van outside of Jen's Sweet Treats in Cudahy in April when Blackshire allegedly dragged her out of the van and punched her five or six times. Art Baker, 75, was also allegedly attacked by Blackshire and punched several times in the same area that morning. Clark was hurt but didn't break any bones. Baker suffered a broken jaw. Good Samaritans detained Blackshire until police arrived.
Blackshire is also accused of punching an officer during his arrest at the Cudahy Police station.
He is still in police custody.
