I hope the stabbing victim is going to be okay. It is rare that someone steps in to help a woman who is being attacked by her partner.

The stabbing victim failed to follow the first tenet of William Burroughs' "Words of Advice for Young People": "Never interfere in a boy and girl fight!"

Saw that PT Cruiser on Sunday on the back of a tow truck; looked pretty bad. Glad to hear she is ok

hope the topeka woman is ok sounds like it. Now in this heat wave I am surprised that more of these types of thefts have not accured. What took the cops so long in that arrest??

I drove by there (Ridge ct) at 12:30am last night. There were emergency vehicles still there and two were on the way. Anyone know what happen?
