MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -An apparent simmering feud boiled over inside a Pleasant Valley Road grocery store, according to Mobile Police. They say one man was attacked, beaten, then slashed several times with a box cutter on the face, neck and chest.
37-year-old Antonio Hinton is wanted for First Degree Assault. Investigators tell FOX10 News Fugitive Files, on Saturday, July 9th, Hinton swung at the victim as he stood in the check-out line. They also say Hinton’s girlfriend, Katherine Lane, then used a large bottle to beat the man on the head. While that was happening, Hinton used the box cutter to cut the victim several times, before both left the scene, according to MPD. The victim survived, but investigators say he’ll need more surgery.
