MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Police say a Mansfield man has been arrested after a Massachusetts woman accused him of trying to attack her and her toddler with a knife.

Mansfield police arrested 27-year-old David Brock Thursday and charged him with assault with a deadly weapon.

Brock lives in the apartment with his mother. Police say Brock is an acquaintance of the unidentified woman and the toddler, who were found on the balcony of his second-floor apartment.

Two knives were recovered from the apartment. Police say they believe Brock stashed them in a toilet tank.

Brock’s mother Janet says he is bipolar and that a counselor apparently believes he is not taking his medications. A call to her residence Friday was not immediately returned.

Brock was set to be arraigned Friday in Attleboro.
