Authorities say the attack happened about 7:45 p.m. Wednesday at the Cornerstone Rescue Mission. One victim was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

Fifty-seven-year-old Phillip Fetterman is charged with two counts of aggravated assault.

Program director Brian Mathis tells the Rapid City Journal that he did not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the attack, which Mathis says was "unprovoked and out of the blue."

Fetterman is being held in jail without bond.
