In The Mean Time...
SHREVEPORT, LA – Police say 16-year-old Devon Antonio pushed his luck too far when he decided to rob a 63-year-old woman a second time, and ended up dead after the woman shot him in the chest.
Police say the teen broke into the woman’s home carrying a shotgun and demanding money from her safe. The woman said she recognized Antonio as the same person who robbed her of some money and a gun just a few weeks prior.
She said she feared for her life because the teen was pointing a shotgun at her demanding money, and she knew her safe only contained around $55 dollars in coins.
“As I was unlocking the safe I prayed to God to give me strength, to get through this, it’ll be me or him,” she said.
It is said that God helps those who helps themselves, and this woman helped herself tremendously when she replaced the gun stolen previously and had made the decision to store it inside the safe. She removed the gun from the safe with one hand while taking the bag of coins with the other.…
PORTLAND, OR – A man armed with a shotgun got a bit more than he bargained for after he broke into an apartment during an attempt to rob the people inside.
After 38-year-old Joshua McCoy successfully broke down the front door of the residence, while wielding a pistol-grip shotgun , he demanded money from the residents.
But a quick thinking 20-year-old foiled McCoy’s robbery attempt after he grabbed the shotgun from McCoy and then pushed his ass down a flight of stairs. McCoy ended up hitting his head on the way down and was knocked unconscious.
The 20-year-old and his mother’s boyfriend called police and stood watch over McCoy until law enforcement arrived and took McCoy into custody. After a quick trip to the hospital, McCoy was taken to jail and charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree robbery and first-degree burglary.…
According to the alleged victim, Ronald Lavoy entered the deli Saturday evening and waited for the place to empty. When the last customer walked out the door, Lavoy apparently removed his clothing and started strokin‘. Obviously unimpressed, the woman called police. When Lavoy realized what she was doing, he put his clothes on and walked out.
Police soon had their man — he was found at a bus stop a few blocks away. He was charged with two counts of lewdness, tender years sexual assault (that’s a new one) and endangering the welfare of a child. He is being held on $100,000 bail.
Turns out he had been in the deli the previous evening, doing the same damn thing. The victim in that case, though, simply yelled at him to GTFO…. so he did.
Poor, dejected sumbitch… no one wants to look at his willy.…
According to the victim, John Ott, his neighbor approached him Friday night and asked if he could bum a cigarette. Before he even had a chance to realize what was happening, Ott said, Alberto Felipe was all over him.
“He comes up puts me in a bear hug and next thing I know he’s biting my ear,” Ott said. “This all started because I wouldn’t give him a cigarette.”
Ott was rushed to a local hospital, his ear just kinda hanging on by a thread. Fortunately, Felipe didn’t swallow any important pieces and doctors were able to stitch it back on.
Felipe was arrested for felony aggravated battery, but has already made his $3,000 bond. It’s not his first rodeo, either — he’s had at least three previous convictions for assault and battery.
Ott says Felipe is back in the ‘hood, hurling insults at him from across the street on a fairly regular basis.…
Ryan Bensen, 40, and Erica Manley, 37, were getting their drink on at the Twisted Fish in Seaside late Friday evening, and when it came time to make good on their bill, they apparently showed their waitress their appreciation by slipping her some go fast with the cash.
We seriously need an “Are you fucking stupid” tag here at the Demon.
After getting a good look at her “tip,” the waitress called police. Though the envelope has been sent to the lab to be analyzed, the responding officer pretty much knew what it was on sight. It’s Oregon, after all…
Benson and Manley were taken into custody at the scene. A quick search revealed more meth in Manley’s purse. After procuring a warrant to search the couple’s car, even more meth was discovered. And a search of the couple’s motel room revealed meth and the tools necessary to produce more meth.…
Wichita, KS – Police have arrested two teens after they allegedly robbed a woman at a Taco Bell drive-through after she suffered a fatal brain aneurysm.
Danielle Zimmerman, 43, had left her home to pick up some Taco Bell for her family when she suffered the aneurysm and crashed into the restaurant’s drive-through speaker box. While some witnesses rushed to Zimmerman’s aid, Daquantrius Shaquill Johnson and Quanique Dontrell Thomas-Hameen allegedly approached her for entirely different reasons.
Instead of trying to help the poor woman, the two 19-year-olds robbed Zimmerman of her wedding ring, purse, and iPhone as she lay dying. Emergency crews arrived and rushed Zimmerman to the hospital where she was placed on life support.
Sadly, Zimmerman never regained consciousness and her family made the extremely difficult decision to remove her from life support on Monday. It was at the hospital where Zimmerman’s husband learned that his wife had been robbed.
“Instead of trying to help her, somebody robbed her,” he said. “What really appalled me — the wedding ring.…
Joseph Smolinsky, 36, is facing a couple of charges after allegedly assaulting his live-in girlfriend with a banana, and for resisting arrest after the fact.
Police were called to the couple’s home on New Year’s Day, and learned from the girlfriend that Smolinsky threw a banana at her. Smolinsky denied the accusation, of course, and blamed the banana tossing on the woman.
It was going to take some solid detective work to get to the bottom of this one….
After a thorough investigation, officers determined Smolinsky was the offending party. And how did they arrive at this conclusion? Well, the woman was sporting a red mark on the face, where the banana apparently landed, and there appeared to be a bit of banana peel on the floor near the couch where the woman was sitting.…
Des Moines, IA — A 50-something year old man is being held on charges of domestic abuse with a weapon after allegedly threatening to cut his brother as the two argued over each other’s consumption of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
The alleged victim, also 50-something, reportedly told police his brother, Jerome Davis, “made three peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ate them in the living room. Within the next hour, the suspect made another three of these peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, bringing his total consumption of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to six.” Did anyone else read that statement in Count Von Count’s voice?
Anyways, this pissed the victim off…. and rightfully so, right? I mean, six sandwiches? That’s like, half a loaf of bread right there…
The victim apparently mentioned something about his brother’s “over-eating,” which led to a heated argument in which both men started screaming about how lazy and fat the other one was. This led to Davis pulling a knife.
Police say Davis held the knife to his brother’s face and threatened to cut him.…
Corvallis, OR — The not-so-hot mess to the left is 24-year-old Dawn Lohmann — she was arrested on numerous charges after allegedly going all neanderthal and beating the crap out of a disabled vehicle on I-5 Sunday, as the driver and passenger watched in horror.
The vehicle’s passengers, a 53 and 61-year-old woman, were out doing whatever it is women that age do on a Sunday morning, when their car ran out of gas on the highway. As the two woman dialed for help, Lohmann, barefoot, approached the car.
The two women wisely rolled up the windows and locked the doors. In response, Lohmann reportedly dropped her pants, exposing her lady bits to the women. And then it got weird…..
After dropping trou, Lohmann, barefoot and presumably pantless(?), took off across the highway.
She reappeared just moments later and jumped on the hood of the car. She then began jumping up and down, the women later told police. No word on whether any grunting, growling was involved. Also unknown, whether the words HULK or SMASH was used at any point.…
According to witnesses, the man followed the woman into the restroom at about 7:30 that morning and proceeded to give her a swirlie in the shitter. No word on whether any actual flushing was involved.
When said witnesses demanded the man and woman vacate the restroom, cause, you know, people gotta pee, the man forcefully grabbed the woman by the hair and dragged her out of the restaurant.
He was then seen shoving the woman into an Infiniti G35, and was overheard saying something like, “You’re going to die today and I’m going to be the one to do it.” Which, after having one’s head dunked into a BK toilet, wouldn’t be such a terrible idea. Especially after the breakfast rush….
The man is described as a slim 20-something, about 6 feet tall, and dressed in a white tank top. And pants, I assume.…
Santa Maria, CA — Look at that mug, people. Does that look like the face of crazy? The kind of crazy that would break into your home, steal your shit and kill your cat after a breakup? Meet 43-year-old Nellie Palacios — from what police are saying, yes, she is that kind of crazy.
According to police, on the afternoon of January 2, Palacios, accompanied by her new boyfriend, entered her ex-boyfriend’s home and started grabbing paintings from the walls and stashed ’em in her car. She also apparently choked the man’s cat a bit before stabbing it with a kitchen knife.
The new boyfriend, who apparently believed he was at a home of one of the woman’s cousins, called police to report the woman’s erratic behavior. I’m assuming he got a little wigged out once the stabbing commenced….
When police arrived on scene, the new boyfriend informed them he had primarily been outside while Palacios was robbing the place, but did admit to seeing Palacios stab the cat and stash the body in an igloo type doghouse in the yard.…
North Charleston, SC — Kayso, I’m a little late on this one – those who know me would expect nothing less from the Queen of Procrastination – but since it’s looking like Crazy Lady Day at The Dreamin’ Demon, I’m gonna go ahead and throw in Helen Williams.
Williams, 44, sent her common-law husband out for some beer late Christmas Eve, and when the man returned home empty handed due to the fact that the stores were closed, she got a little testy.
The 41-year-old man was apparently in the kitchen upon his return (making his own damn sammich, by the way), when Williams grabbed the squirrel and knocked him upside the back of the head with it. Then, police say, she stabbed him with it. I, for one, would love to see this friggin’ squirrel… sounds like I need a similar one for my “collection.”
Anyway, the man tore out of the house and headed to the neighbors to call police. When police arrived shortly after midnight, they found the man covered in blood, suffering from cuts to the face and shoulder.…
According to investigators, the girl was dropped off at home Friday and was apparently unhappy about it. The girl reportedly told police her mother, Toshia Edmonson, said something about “giving her away” and shoved her down on a couch.
Like something ripped from one of my own nightmares, the spawn waited until her mother fell asleep and armed herself with a kitchen knife. She then crept into her mother’s bedroom and got to stabbing, police said. Nine friggin’ times. This kid was more than just a little unhappy, methinks.
The commotion apparently woke the girl’s younger brother, who later told police he heard his mother screaming for the girl to stop it, and saw the both of them covered in blood.
Edmonson was apparently able to get her hands on the knife and fell on top of the child to stop the attack.
The girl reportedly told police she stabbed her mother because she was “so, so angry and frustrated with her.” She’s now cooling her little heels in the Henry Wade Juvenile Center.…
WEST MELBOURNE, FL – Joshua Werbicki is facing animal cruelty charges after the 22-year-old was caught on video repeatedly having sex with his roommate’s dog.
According to the police report, the owner of the dog set up surveillance cameras in her home to try and figure out what was wrong with her German shepherd mix. The dog is described as a “family pet” and had recently been limping around the house and cowering whenever approached by family members.
The reason for the dog’s injuries and fearful behavior was revealed when home surveillance video captured Joshua repeatedly having sex with the woman’s dog. If getting busted repeatedly fucking a dog wasn’t bad enough, Joshua was arrested inside the Papa John’s he worked at.
Joshua Werbicki has been charged with animal cruelty, a felony, and sexual acts involving animals, a misdemeanor. Brevard County Animal Services Sgt. Michael Healy said his agency could seek an injunction to have Joshua banned from owning, or living with, any type of animal in the county.
Joshua holds the honored distinction of being the first person featured on D’D in 2014 for having sex with an animal.…
ELK CITY, OK – Police say 30-year-old Natalie Webb is facing multiple sex abuse charges after she allegedly pimped out her four young children.
Authorities in Beckham County say the abuse happened multiple times between December 2012 and March 2013. A DHS investigator alerted police to the allegations in August after a 9-year-old child told them that his 8-year-old brother and his two 3-year-old sisters had all been molested.
He said that his mother was “selling sex” from him and his siblings to unknown adults. The boy also told the DHS investigator that he would hide from his mother in a dumpster, and that he’d accidentally walked in on the abuse at one point.
Aside from the sexual abuse claims, a police affidavit also alleges Webb sold meth out of her home and was often high around the kids. The report stated, “[He] thinks when mom took the needles it would make her act different. He thinks that because she would act weird and her breath would smell funny and her arm would have little dots where it was bleeding.”
When questioned, Webb adamantly denied she sold the kids for sex or sold meth from her home, but did admit to being high around the children. …
BOSTON, MA – A 43-year-old mother of two was crushed to death on New Year’s Eve as she walked across a Boston drawbridge.
Aura Garcia was on her way to a doctor’s appointment as she walked across the Meridian Street bridge, a drawbridge that crosses over the Chelsea River, when it began to rise to let a boat pass underneath. According to police spokesman David Estrada, Garcia “was probably halfway across the bridge when it started to open. She was in a blind spot where (the operator) could not see her.”
Another pedestrian told investigators that before the bridge began to rise she heard a loud foghorn and saw the bridge’s blinking lights before hearing Garcia screaming over and over again. The bridge operator heard her screams as well, and immediately began lowering the bridge back in place.
What the operator didn’t know was that Garcia’s lower body had slipped through the gap made at the lower hinge of the bridge, and she was holding on to a handrail to keep from falling into the river below.…
FRANKLIN, IN – Bonita Lynn Vela is behind bars after she held an 18-year-old against his will and sliced his penis with a box-cutter.
According to police, the 35-year-old got high as hell from smoking weed and became convinced that the 18-year-old boyfriend of one of her daughters had molested her 2-year-old son. With the help of two other people, the teen was held against his will inside a trailer for three and a half hours in an effort to elicit a confession.
The man was adamant he had not molested her son, but Vela was not convinced. She told the teen that she’d ordered a hit on him and that he would eventually be tied to a tree, shot in the head and then left to be eaten by animals.
She then gave the teen a choice: “He would have to choose his life or his penis.” Vela told the teen she might let him leave the trailer alive if he dropped his pants and let her injure his penis.…
PHOENIX, AZ – A man has admitted to hacking up his 13-year-old son with an ax because he thought the boy was a demon sent from Hell to eat him.
Police were called to 51-year-old Gary Sherrill’s home after his ex-wife called to report Sherrill had not returned their son to her. The couple shared custody of the boy and Sherrill was supposed to bring him back to her home on New Year’s Eve.
When police arrived at his home, Sherrill initially told them his son was not home. He eventually allowed the officers into his home to check for themselves, and the officers found David dead inside. The boy had suffered stab wounds and lacerations to several parts of his body.
When asked what the hell happened to his kid, Sherrill told them he killed the poor kid with an ax. But it was self defense, Sherrill explained. His son was actually a demon and was going to eat him.
Police arrested Sherrill and charged him with first-degree murder. Some of Sherrill’s neighbors said they’d seen the couple arguing in the past, and that Sherrill had been acting strange lately.…
