MARY ANN McHenry slept peacefully last night, confident that the man accused of brutally beating her was behind bars.
"This is such a relief," she said. "Part of my stress was not knowing where he was, or how close to me he was."
Those fears were valid: According to a federal official, plainclothes police officers picked up Kenneth Todd, McHenry's alleged attacker, on Spruce Street near 13th, about a block away from where police say he beat her to unconsciousness during a July 25 home invasion.
The officers made the arrest late Thursday after recognizing Todd from his mug shot, which had been widely distributed by law-enforcement officials.
