According to the probable cause statement, Allison punched his grandmother several times in the face. He also held a knife to her stomach and her wrist, eventually cutting her on her left wrist.

She also had blood in her mouth.

Allison's grandfather saw him assaulting his wife and tried to stop the assault. Allison put his grandfather in a choke hold until her went unconscious. When his grandfather regained consciousness, Allison told him to give him a ride away from the area, or he would kill him.
