A he-said-she-said incident precipitated by a couple’s argument over a crying baby sent a 37-year-old man to the emergency room of BJC Medical Center with a cut carotid artery last week.
An officer of the Commerce Police Department interviewed the black male victim. He told police he was in bed at a Park Street address, when his girlfriend, a 34-year-old white female, came in yelling that she was tired of their baby crying all the time and that she could not take it any more, according to the report.
The man said when he began to get out of bed that the woman hit him in the face with her fist. He got the baby to try to calm it, he told police, but the woman began hitting him. He put the child down, pushed his girlfriend away and she “hit him on the head” at which time he noticed he was bleeding.
The woman had a different version. She told police that when she awakened the man, he started hitting her in the face. The officer could find no marks on her to support that allegation.
The woman said she asked the man if he was trying to kill her and, if so, she would do it herself, at which time she picked up a box cutter. When she acted as if she was going to cut herself, she said, he came towards her as if to hit her. She “threw up her arms in front of her face” to protect herself, which is when the man’s neck was cut, she told police.
I know both of the people in this incident and I tell you that lady is INSANE!!! She is always high on pills and always trying to fight people , she fights her family and anyone else that she sees in her way if she is upset. I am shocked that no charges are being pressed but when I saw it happened in Commerce I understood why. Commerce never presses charges on anything!!!
Anytime I have had something bad happen to me in Commerce all the police say is " We need a witness" , sad sad story.
I know there are always details that we don't find out, but why is a child left in the care of these two people? Regardless of who hit whom, a child does not need to be in an environment where anyone is this violent and where cutting is happening over the baby crying! There are too many people who would be grateful to have a child.
Holly , the girl that did that already has 3 other kids and all the fathers of the other kids have them because DFACS took them from her. I cant understand why they haven't taken the baby yet.
The man involved he has 8 kids if you count the baby , but most of them are teens and live on there own. Its sad when DFACS wont take the 4th child away from the crazy mom!!!!!!!!!!
Can we not give out the names of these crazy people so that the rest of us sane folks know to beware when we see psycho jane?? Or to warn other men of her nature?? And I agree witht he mans story, sounds like she cut him, and deserves to go to jail. And whiles she there, she needs to have her tubes tied. If you cant handle the responsibilty of a baby, QUIT HAVING THEM!! This goes back to my comment on the shooting death of the 6 yr old, I truly think that our local DFCS should be evaluated. Some of the decisions they are making regarding the safety of innocent chidren are ridiculous and unheard of. They need to put their own children in mind if they ever had to be put int hat situation.
