Dothan Man Charged with Attempted Murder

Kahlif Miguel Cooper, 33, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with a felony criminal charge of attempted murder after he reportedly assaulted a 32 year old man with a baseball bat in an incident that took place in the 700 block of Westmead Street on September 3, 2013.

Dothan Police responded to an assault complaint and investigators  determined that the incident took place after Cooper went to the residence of a mutual friend to recover personal property.  The confrontation took place in the backyard and Cooper is believed to have used a black baseball bat as part of the assault.  The victim suffered injuries to several parts of his body and was transported to Southeast Alabama Medical Center.

Khalif cooper was taken into custody a few blocks away from where the incident took place.  Police investigators also charged Cooper with armed robbery for allegedly stealing money and a cell phone from the victim after the baseball bat assault took place.  The property was recovered by police officers when Cooper was taken into custody.

Court records show that Cooper has faced multiple criminal charges in the recent past.  Less than three weeks ago Cooper posted $150,000 bail from the county jail in a felony first degree kidnapping charge.  He was also out on bail for a felony criminal charge of marijuana possession.

Khalif Miguel Cooper is currently being held without bail.
