Cincinnati, OH – An Ohio man is facing robbery and assault charges after robbing one man of his cell phone and stabbing another in both of his eyes.
Police say that after Eugene Dase punched one man and took his phone, he put Robert Sandford in the hospital after stabbing him multiple times in the eyes.
Police say Dase used a steak knife to stab the poor man’s left eye, then used a television antenna to stab him in his right eye. Sandford was taken to the hospital where he was listed in critical condition.
While in court Monday, Dase cursed at the judge and laughed at his potentially lengthy prison stay.
Dase: “How about I just plead guilty right now?”
Judge Bouchard: “You’re not going to see the light of day for a long time.”
Eugene Dase: “Do you think I give a (expletive)? You think I care?”
Judge Bouchard: “Yeah, I think you’re going to care in about 15 years when you haven’t seen the light of day.”
Not a real shocker, but Dase has prior convictions for assault and has a history alcohol problems. There are also questions about his mental stability, so he has been ordered to undergo a mental evaluation.Tags: antenna, Assault, Crime, Eugene Dase, eye, knife, Ohio, Stabbing
