From the Daily News today, A crazy person in Brooklyn freaked out at his roommate over finances, ordered him to strip naked, and started slashing him with a Freddy Krueger claw. You know, they sell fake plastic one's at Bushwick awesome-spot Vortex, buuut something tells me this Freddy's was home made.
"A Brooklyn man, apparently acting out his violent movie fantasies, attacked a man named Jason with a razor-fingered gloved hand à la Freddy Kruger, authorities said yesterday.
The nightmare on Pacific Street, in Crown Heights, unfolded at 2:45 p.m. Nov. 10, when Joseph Swaby, 22, allegedly accused his roommate, Jason Dixon - whom he met in jail - of stealing from him.
Suddenly, Swaby whipped out a replica of the bladed glove famously worn by the Kruger character in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" flicks.
He ordered Dixon to strip, kicked him out, and began slashing him, police said.
Swaby remained at large until Wednesday, when he was arrested following an attack reminiscent of the classic Quentin Tarantino shoot-'em-up "Reservoir Dogs," authorities said.
This time, he allegedly fired pistols in both fists at Shawn Johnson, 40, on Pacific Street at 5:20 p.m. on Jan. 18. A bystander was grazed."
