Woman Slashed (By Employee) At Gainesville Wal-Mart
WCJB TV-20 News ^ | 12/17/06 | Michael Maurino

One local teen went to a store to go shopping and ended up taking a trip to the hospital after a fight with an employee.

Now the store employee is facing jail time after slashing her across the neck.

Gainesville Police say the 17-year-old teenage girl was visiting the Wal-Mart on Northwest 13th Street.

She had walked out of the store, but went back when she thought she left her cell phone in a shopping cart.

Detectives say she approached 18-year-old Wal-Mart employee Darius stacy, who was retreving the carts, and asked if he had the phone.

The two started arguing, and then shoving each other before Stacy pulled out a weapon.

"The employee had a box cutter and he cut the 17 year old in the throat," said GPD Sgt. Keith Kameg. "Fortunately, they were non life threatening injures."

The young woman was treated at Shands U-F for a cut that extended from her left ear to her windpipe.

Stacy is being charged with attempted murder.

Not just cut in the throat:

"The young woman was treated at Shands U-F for a cut that extended from her left ear to her windpipe."

Attempted murder.

Don't blame the state, blame the individual. I should know - I live in California.

There must be something seriously wrong with that guy's mentality if he drew a deadly weapon and went for a throat slash over a minor argument. He's a dangerous psychopath and should be treated accordingly. Thank God he's 18 so no slap on the wrist juvie court for him.

Here's more on it.


Man held in throat slashing attack

By DEBORAH BALL

December 17. 2006 6:01AM

A Gainesville Wal-Mart employee was arrested late Friday after police say he slashed a teen's throat with a box cutter during an argument over a missing cell phone in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

Darius J. Stacy, 18, of 6136 NW 26th St., was retrieving carts from the parking lot on NW 13th Street at 8 p.m. when the 17-year-old girl, with whom he is acquainted, approached him about her missing cell phone, police reported.

The pair began to argue and pushed each other for about 30 seconds before Stacy reached into his back pocket and pulled the box cutter out, according to witnesses.

Witnesses said that Stacy then slashed the teen's throat, which left behind a 7-inch-long cut from below her left ear to about the center of her throat. The teen's larynx was injured and she underwent emergency surgery at Shands at the University of Florida, officers said. Her injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Officers said Stacy ran from the parking lot to a drainage ditch behind a nearby grocery store where he hid his orange work vest and the box cutter. His mother later brought him to the Gainesville Police Department, police said.

A manager at Wal-Mart declined to comment about Stacy's arrest Saturday.

Stacy was charged with attempted murder by police and was being held on $50,000 bond Saturday night at the Alachua County Jail.

I'm surprised it is on the net, is that a mistake, or was he tried as an adult or something?
