ZLX Flashback: Woman Stabs Vendor With Christmas Ornament

Black Friday is a day where a lot of disgusting, un-Christmas-like violence occurs at stores nationwide. But we almost EXPECT that at places like Walmart.  We don’t expect it to happen when middle-aged women are shopping for arts and crafts. But that’s exactly what happened last year in Plantsville, Connecticut.

55-year-old Ruth Wagner of Plantsville was at a craft fair, shopping for Christmas ornaments. As she was browsing, a vendor accused her of stealing some jewelry.

They started yelling at each other, so Ruth picked up a Christmas ornament made out of a seashell … and STABBED the vendor with it. She got him in the forearm.  A piece of the ornament broke off inside his arm, and he ended up needing surgery to have it removed.

Ruth was arrested and charged with SEVERAL felonies, including first-degree robbery, second-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, sixth-degree larceny, and second-degree breach of peace.
