    Webster Police

    Police arrested a man accused of assaulting a woman and stabbing a man while they were in bed Wednesday in Webster, Massachusetts.

    Authorities say 39-year-old James Kelly of Webster went into the basement of a Windy Ridge Road home for what he believed was a prearranged meeting with a woman to watch television. When he went upstairs and found the couple, he allegedly assaulted the woman and stabbed the man in the chest and stomach.

    Officers responded around 11 p.m., but Kelly had fled the home. He was arrested without incident after police found him.

    The victims' conditions were not immediately revealed by police.

    New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    Kelly faces charges of assault and battery on a household member, armed assault in a dwelling, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault to maim and malicious destruction of property.

    Kelly was arraigned Thursday at Dudley District Court. He is being held without bail until his next court appearance on Tuesday.

    It was not immediately clear if Kelly had an attorney.
