Authorities claim that on September 19, 2022, a Florida man named Edmund Clark stabbed a friend 40 times with a pair of scissors while they were inside a convenience store in an attempt to behead him.
The stabbing took place inside the Trading Post at Burnt Store Marina, a family-run restaurant and shop in Punta Gorda, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
What transpired at the business in Florida?
According to the camera footage that was made public on Monday, the elderly man’s son and the 36-year-old carer Edmund Clarke arrived at the scene. As the brutal attack continued, Clarke abruptly reached into the store for a pair of scissors and leapt at the victim.
Deputies said that during the altercation, Clarke attempted to behead the victim while also snatching other blades he had seen inside the shop.
Deputies claim that the “brutal” attack came on suddenly and lasted for many minutes. According to the sheriff’s office, the victim was stabbed more than 40 times in the head, neck, and chest before being taken to a nearby hospital.
Carmine Marceno, the sheriff, said:
“Lee County will not condone this reprehensible crime. I am pleased with our deputies’ prompt action in saving the victim’s life as well as the diligent work of my investigators in getting Clarke off the streets.
According to WINK, Clarke’s father has been his caregiver for nearly ten years according to the police report.
According to reports, the two had already met when Clarke wanted to go to the market to buy some food before the catastrophe. He apparently began experiencing hallucinations and shouting about being attacked by an unidentified foe, according to Clarke’s statement.
