The way I see it, you are dealing with an insane person that has committed criminal acts.

Call the police immediately, without warning or notice if/when he shows up.

Let them take care of this. That is what they are paid to do and they are very good at it.

No talking except to protect yourself (e.g. distract him) until the cops arrive.

That is not your son anymore. Drugs have taken over.

He can return to some form of sanity someday, but not until he is ready.

Hope this helps.

Stay safe.

While not meaning to be disrespectful, your 'friend' has no idea what he/she is talking about.

contradicting statements from this "friend?"

if you chose to engage further with thsi "friend" it seems it should only involve
" so your saying you will take him in? great!!"

this is all about you and protecting yourself, goodkarma.
son or not- you have the right to protect yourself from ANYONE.
