LAS VEGAS -- A man who is facing numerous counts of attempted murder -- for attacking people with a hammer -- was high on methamphetamine, a police report said.
Damien Robins, 37, is accused of attacking several people in Boulder City and Henderson on Friday evening.
Robins' wife told police that he has an addiction to meth and would disappear for days at a time if he was high. He also had been fired from his job the day before the attacks.
His wife said he had disappeared a few days prior to the attack but contacted her and asked if he could visit her on Friday. When he stopped by the home, the woman told police she could tell Robbins was on meth and he told her he wanted to "kill and burn (her) body." Robbins would not allow his wife to leave the house, the report said.
