A Pennsylvania man is now in police custody after stabbing a woman in the face after asking if she had jumper cables, Penn Live reported.
On February 22nd, just after 5:30 P.M., officers from the Ebensburg Police Department were dispatched to the parking lot of a senior living facility in Cambria County. A woman had called saying a man had asked her for jumper cables, stabbed her in the face, and then calmly walked away. When police arrived, they asked the suspect, later identified as 41-year-old Victor Kealey, what had occurred. He reportedly responded, “You know what I did.”
Police say Kealey then exited his vehicle, yelling at them to shoot him. After threatening to stab officers, he continued to demand to be shot, and ran towards them “aggressively.” The 41-year-old was then tased and arrested. While searching Kealey’s vehicle, several knives and belt holsters were discovered. Among them was the knife used to stab the victim.
Kealey is now facing charges of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and making terroristic threats. He is being held at Cambria County Prison on a $100,000 bail. His victim was taken to a nearby hospital, and is expected to fully recover from her injuries.
