A panhandler enraged that a 63-year-old woman declined to give him money as she walked out a gas station here Friday morning, pulled out a steak knife and slashed her face, police said.
Scott O’Neal, 33, was arrested on felonious assault and aggravated robbery charges.
Police say that the woman had just stepped outside of the Thornton’s and was holding lottery tickets and cash when O’Neal approached her at the North Bend Road location at around 9:15 a.m.
“She politely turned him down, and he began attacking her,” said Lt. George Brown.Court records state he was trying to wrestle the money out of the woman’s hands as he was attacking her.
We don't have this crap in "Redville". First, people out here aren't so stupid as to buy lottery tickets. Second, they're not out in the street holding up money. Third, the cops harass these derelicts until they move to a place where people tolerate them....like "Progress" City.
Getting stabbed in the face?
Now that's "progressive"!
