"He's a very, very dangerous guy. He has no value about any human being," Patel added.
Kenton County Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders said authorities are treating Dahn for mental health issues, which is one reason for the lack of jail time. For instance, one burglary charge from July was later reduced to a misdemeanor because Dahn told police the person he was trying to burglarize didn't exist.
Dahn is under the care of Kenton County Mental Health Court. According to Sanders, Dahn could be admitted to a mental health hospital or serve substantial time after this latest crime.
Dahn is getting the help he needs, while Patel says this attack left his brother paralyzed from the neck down, and he's struggling with pneumonia and multiple other infections. They try to visit him at least two times a day but it's frustrating trying to even talk with him.
"He has to put the tubes in there, and we can't communicate, and he wants to try to tell us but we can't understand," the victim's brother explained.
Patel said since the attack at the Shell station last month, they don't stay open as late, and they close their doors at 11 p.m. They explained with the recent incident and being understaffed, they can't afford to take the risk.
Dahn is currently being held at the Kenton County Jail. His next court appearance is November 12.
