PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Court documents in the case of a 10-year-old boy who fought off a knife-wielding sex offender inside a Wendy's restroom were unsealed Wednesday.

Those documents said the boy was only at the Wendy's on NE Sandy Boulevard because his family got a flat tire during their drive home from a camping trip.

While his father was across the street at a Les Schwab, the boy walked to Wendy's to use the bathroom with his older cousin, who waited for him outside with the family dog. 

That's when police said Adam Brown attacked.

Court documents reveal Brown followed the boy into the bathroom and locked the door behind them on July 1.   He then pulled out a knife and ordered the child to take off his clothes, police said.

When Brown touched him, the boy told police he fought back and broke the knife in half.

After 10 minutes had gone by, without his son's return, the boy's father went to check on him. That's when court documents said he heard his son screaming while he was trapped in the locked bathroom. He yelled for employees to come help.

The boy's father said the door opened for a brief moment, and he saw the suspect naked, covered in blood. The door closed again, quickly and was locked.

The father then tried to break down the door, and that's when his son emerged from the bathroom, naked and bloody, according to court documents.

Other customers then held the bathroom door shut, until police arrived to prevent Brown from escaping.

Court documents show the boy had been stabbed six times, including three times to the neck.

Once the suspect was finally arrested, investigators found baby oil and the broken knife in the bathroom. Several fires had also been started using paper towels and toilet seat covers.

While locked in the bathroom, Brown asked to call his parents to tell them he was going to prison, police said in the court documents.

When asked why, he said, "It looks suspicious, because I hurt the kid."  

Brown has a long history of sex abuse and violent crimes.

He appeared in court Wednesday morning and pleaded not guilty to all counts. His trial is scheduled to start Wednesday, Aug. 23.
