I agree with 14+.

Did something startle him awake to make him attack? It almost seems like he had redirected aggression as 14+ stated, which normally occurs when a cat will see another cat outside and can't get out to fight so it attacks the closest thing, human or animal. One of our senior members has a cat with this and uses Feliway which I believe works for her.

First step is neutering to get rid of the hormones, and hopefully bloodwork will precede the operation. You many want to add a urinalysis to check glucose levels.
