Topeka man convicted in attack at TV station

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A 49-year-old Topeka man has been convicted of attacking employees at a TV station after he was told it would not report a story he wanted covered.

Ray Anthony Miles was found guilty Thursday of multiple charges stemming from the May 23rd incident at the offices of WIBW-TV.

 Miles went to the station to request coverage of a problem he was having with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

He left the building, but then forced his way into the locked lobby and shoved the news director before being subdued by other employees. The employees were punched, kicked and stabbed before they managed to take a knife away from their attacker.

Miles was arrested the same day and has remained in jail since then.
