"Man" Tries To Kill Woman Because She Looked Happy
A madman armed with a knife attacked a woman and her 8-year-old daughter outside a Chicago church because her "happiness" angered him, according to prosecutors.
The 26-year-old woman was walking with her daughter Tuesday afternoon when Jessie White, 25, reportedly walked up behind the mom and uttered, "I'm going to kill you."
White then thrust a knife to the mother's throat while the woman desperately called to her daughter, whom had been knocked to the ground, to run home and get help, The Chicago Sun Times reported.
The brave little girl obeyed her mother's orders but not before reportedly trying to hit the attacker with her backpack.
White and his victim meanwhile struggled for the knife when the blade broke from its handle.
At that moment White stabbed the weapon at her head, not knowing that the blade was gone, causing her to be struck with only the blunt handle, DNAinfo reported.
Not giving up, White allegedly dragged the woman down into a basement of an abandoned coach house after punching her to the ground.
Cook County prosecutor Erin Antonietti said White knew the basement was unlocked because he had gone in there to urinate earlier in the day.
"I'm going to kill you. I have to kill you," he allegedly shouted while beating and strangling her on the floor inside.
