(Newser) – A 76-year-old Boy Scout leader has died after being stabbed in the neck yesterday while taking another adult and two boys on a hike, reports AP. Police busted Shane Golitko, a 22-year-old man who lives close to the Indiana hiking trail where the unprovoked attack occurred. Golitko's mother called 911 just before the stabbing, saying he broke her arm and stabbed two dogs before walking to the trail where the Boy Scouts were walking, said investigators. Police arrested Golitko after an eight-mile car chase.
