Man Dressed As Horror Movie Character Stabs Homeless Man
May 20, 2006
CBS) LOS ANGELES It was a nightmare on Hollywood Boulevard.
A homeless man was allegedly stabbed by a man dressed as horror movie character Freddy Krueger.
The street entertainer dressed as the “Nightmare on Elm Street” character was arrested Saturday for allegedly stabbing a man with his knife-like fingernails in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. The entertainer was dressed in a full-body Freddy Krueger costume, including a glove with fingers made of scissor blades, Los Angeles police Lt. Dennis Ballas said.
The man dressed as Krueger got into an altercation with a man walking along Hollywood Boulevard and stabbed him in the chest with his scissor-hand, Ballas said.
The Krueger character, who is in his 20s, was not injured. But he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
"We thought all the characters on Hollywood Boulevard had props made of plastic, but this guy's hands were made of real metal," Ballas said.
