A man accused of assaulting several people with a metal pipe Thursday in Bedford County has been arrested.

22-year-old Brandon Carpenter is charged with six counts of assault and one count of threatening to burn a home. One victim was taken to the hospital. The extent of the victim's injuries are unclear.

The incident happened around 5:45 p.m. at 1017 Falcon Road, which is located in the Hardy Road Mobile Home Park. Before deputies arrived on scene, several people reported that a man was hitting people with a metal pipe.

The incident started with an argument between Carpenter and the victim who was eventually taken to the hospital.
