My evil plan? If enough people are deterred by OC's whacked-outedness, then housing prices will fall as supply falls below demand, and I'll eventually be able to afford that four-bedroom and two-1/2-bath in Fountain Valley.
So, in that vein:
A woman remains in the hospital today after stabbing herself and a 15-year-old boy with a sword just after informing her father that she was hearing voices, police said.This is precisely why I don't leave swords lying around the house.
At 11:15 p.m. Monday, police received a call about the stabbing at an apartment building in the eastside of town, Fullerton police Lt. Kevin Hamilton said.
Before the incident, she called her father and told him she was hearing voices, Hamilton said. The woman's father sent her brother to the apartment to help.
At some point, the woman grabbed a sword and began stabbing herself in the legs and body, Hamilton said.
Then she turned on the boy, 15, who was in the living room at the time. The woman's brother was able to disarm her, Hamilton said.
