    [Real UGLY] Woman slashed in throat at ATM - 50 Stitches... WA

    Woman slashed in throat at ATM | KOMO News - Seattle, Washington | Local & Regional

    By Associated Press
    FERNDALE, Wash. (AP) - A 24-year-old woman required 50 stitches to close cuts to her throat and jaw line after a man armed with a box cutter attacked her as she withdrew money from an ATM machine.

    Samantha Shields said she tried to back away as the man began slashing at her neck.

    "He wasn't just trying to take my money," she said. "I thought he was trying to kill me."

    A crew working inside the Whatcom Educational Credit Union heard her screams Monday morning and chased off the attacker, who ran off without taking anything from her.

    A 20-year-old man was arrested a short time later after Ferndale police used dogs to track a scent from the credit union.

    Joseph R. Smith was booked into the Whatcom County Jail for investigation of first-degree assault with sexual motivation, said Ferndale police Lt. Matt Huffman.

    "Honestly, I can tell you that I will not use another ATM like that," Shields said. "I'll go into the bank. Spending five minutes writing a check doesn't seem so bad now."
    I say he was trying to kill her, it's patently obvious IMO.

    Be aware of your surroundings, avoid dangerous ATM's, and carry if you can... good grief!

    Agreed, attempted murder should be the charge.
    He went for the jugular and in kind so should the courts.

    Maybe she should spend that 5 minutes filling out paperwork to get her concealed handgun license if ya got time to back away from an attack you got time to draw and shoot

    Ferndale's way North, but yes, his Highness the Mayor of Seattle has ordered the Police to draft rules prohibiting concealed weapons on city owned property, State law be damned. The box-cutter would be illegal unless he was carrying it for work.

    Living in condition white will get you in trouble every time.

    Some people will never learn no matter how many headlines are on the front page or on the tube.

    I am extremely cautious and aware when around ATM's... Even before I was carrying a gun.

    Some I just won't use because they are not conducive to using counter-surveillance techniques.
