RICHFIELD — Officials with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office took 47-year-old Brian Olson into custody on Wednesday, August 16th. They say Olson is a person of interest after a 13-year-old suffered severe head injuries while mowing the lawn at his parents’ home in Richfield.

Olson was taken into custody on the grounds of Holy Hill in the Town of Erin around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, officials said in a news release. His vehicle was also located on the grounds.

Officials say on August 14th, around 8:30 p.m., a 911 call came in regarding the 13-year-old’s injuries. The boy was found by his father — unresponsive and unconscious.

Richfield Rescue responded to the scene and transported the boy to Children’s Hospital.

Authorities believe the injuries received to the boy were an intentional act done by another individual.
