A couple times a week we post a bizarre story from the Lorain area. Inevitably, the comments come in: What's with the water in Lorain?
Who knows, but there might actually be something to that line of reasoning because the strange Lorain stories don't seem to stop, they only seem to get stranger.
This time it's the tale of a 15-year-old girl who went batshit crazy on the aunt who was babysitting her.
Police have not released names, but the 15-year-old and her younger brother were being watched by her aunt because her mom was in the hospital. An argument of undetermined origin began, and that's when the teen unleashed the crazy and various projectiles.
First, the teen hurled a brush and a bottle of hairspray. Then she threw a punch, which missed her aunt and landed squarely on her 1-year-old cousin her aunt was holding. Not quite finished with her fury, the teen then threw a coffee table, which prompted her aunt to gather the other children and hightail it to a neighbor's house.
The teen wasn't done yet, though. She grabbed a knife and followed her aunt, threatening to stab her before neighbors interceded to prevent blood from being drawn.
Several people tried to restrain the girl, but she broke free and tried to stab her aunt. Another aunt stepped in front of the girl, forcing her to stop. The teen then fled from the area, according to the report.
When police found the girl at a friend’s house, she claimed it was her aunt who assaulted her and “everyone” had seen the aunt throw the coffee table and try to stab her with a pair of scissors, but no witnesses back that up, the report stated.
The girl could not be medically cleared for admission into the Lorain County Detention Home so she was cited with delinquency by means of felonious assault and assault and issued a summons. She was released to her mother’s custody.
Many questions obviously remain, like what fine citizen of Lorain will do something even crazier tomorrow.
