with one comment

UPDATE, 3 p.m. Eastern, Oct. 24: Police say the woman admitted that her story of being stabbed is a hoax.

A 20-year-old woman who was robbed at an ATM in the Pittsburgh area last night was also maimed by her attacker when the assailant noticed a McCain bumper sticker on her car, police said.

Police told local media that the robber took $60 from the woman, then became angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim’s car. The attacker then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter “B” into her face, Richard said.

The woman refused medical treatment after the assault, which happened outside the view of the bank’s surveillance cameras, police said.

Here is a video report from CBS’ KDKA, Channel 2 in Pittsburgh.

In Central Florida, The home of a Republican headquarters manager was shot up and damaged over his support of Sen. John McCain, the man told police. Media reports said. Rog Coverely said several pellets pierced his Longwood home. Coverely showed several spiderwebbed-holes in the front windows of his home.

The Republican manager said he is convinced he was targeted because of new McCain signs he added around his home. “It says this campaign is getting vicious,” he said.
