A woman who suffered life-threatening stab wounds to her chest and neck Wednesday allegedly was attacked by another woman who had been upset that she was too loud while watching "America's Next Top Model."
Police say the 42-year-old victim and her friends were in a Columbia City apartment drinking beer and watching the reality show hosted by former supermodel Tyra Banks, in which women compete for a chance to launch their modeling careers.
The alleged attacker, an acquaintance of the victim, told the other woman to stop talking loudly. A police spokesman did not specify how they knew each other.
When the "Top Model" fan refused, police say the other woman then opened the apartment door and told her to get out, according to a police report.
Police said the argument then turned physical, with one woman having a clump of her hair pulled out.
The attacker then pulled a paring knife from a nearby apple and began stabbing the 42-year-old, according to a police report.
Witnesses were able to pull the knife away and separate the two before police say one ran into a bedroom.
Medics and police were called about 9:30 p.m. to the apartment in the 5000 block of 37th Avenue South.
Police spokesman Jeff Kappel said the woman's stab wounds were so severe, medics who rushed her to Harborview Medical Center called for donor blood.
A police officer found her lying on a neighbor's couch with a blood-soaked towel covering a chest wound roughly 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch wide, the report said.
The woman had gone upstairs and knocked on the neighbor's door for help, saying she had been stabbed and her money was taken. Police found the clump of hair in a garbage can, but did not find a weapon.
The suspect was still at large early Thursday evening.
My guess? Ferocia Coutura from Transylvania did it.
