…Upon arrest, Nimmons told police that her husband had come home from work shortly before, and that they had gotten into a dispute which had turned heated. She said that the victim had picked up a stick and started to beat her with it, and she had stabbed her husband in self-defense. The police reported that Nimmons had no apparent injuries at the time of the incident, or her arrest. The killing is being treated as homicide.

A single stab wound sounds like she was trying to get him off or away from her, not cold-bloodedly kill an innocent man. I hope the cops are smart enough to sort it out properly.

Man Attacks Ex While She Holds Their 3 Kids, Kills 1 Man, Injures Another: Arrested

Police say Combs threw a brick window through the apartment of his ex, 23, who is the mother of their three daughters, ages three, five and seven. He charged through the glass window armed with a pistol, according to a probable cause statement…

Prosecutors say Combs and his ex were not living together and he did not have permission to be in her home.

Once inside the apartment on 1300 block of North 7th Street, at around 11:30 p.m., he fired a shot into the head and back of one man inside, who police identified as John Gorman, 27. He was pronounced dead soon after. Combs then allegedly shot another man, 25, in the face. He is currently hospitalized and in critical and unstable condition. The statement says these two men are childhood friends of the woman.

After those shootings, Combs reportedly found his ex who was hiding in a closet with their three daughters. At this point, he pressed his pistol to the woman’s face while she clung to her children, the statement says.

She has a circular injury to her forehead and suffered other cuts and lacerations. It appears the children were not physically injured in the assault.

Caught on Video & At-Large: Man Beats, Kidnaps Woman, 6-Year-Old Boy Left Behind in Hotel: Update

Someone, help catch this sick motherfucker. The sickening video is here. I hope, but do not believe, the kidnap victim is still alive. Why didn’t anyone try to intervene or stop it? Is this still a country where people think a man beating the shit out of a women is “personal business”?

The violent confrontation unfolded inside the lobby of the Holiday Inn Hotel on Loyola Avenue, where at least two security cameras are focused on guests.

Surveillance video shows a woman speaking to what appears to be a hotel employee when just before 5 a.m. A man wearing a red shirt walks in, pulls the woman aside and starts to get violent. The unidentified woman is then pulled out of the hotel lobby and brutally beaten several times.

Another woman runs up to the couple and seems to be pleading with the man to stop. He pulls the half-conscious woman towards a nearby red car, but is stopped by that second woman. He finally manages to pull his victim into a silver or light colored BMW-type car and then drives away.

“If people really understood the whole scenario and really understood the dynamics of domestic violence and the power and control of relationships that go on. I think they’d have more sympathy and understanding of what these women are going through,” said Landry.

The domestic violence expert hopes the brutal attack and kidnapping will help police track down the trio captured in the disturbing footage.

“There’s got to be people in the community that know these people. Family members or friends will call. Because obviously this woman needs help,” said Landry.

The NOPD says a six-year-old boy was discovered inside a hotel room booked by someone in that group. The child is now in protective custody.

Mother, in Front of Her Kids, Beats Nurse to Bloody Pulp

Police say Monique Moore, 26, of Camden, N.J. was walking by Cooper University Hospital around 12:45 p.m. with her children, an 11-year-old and an 8-month-old. As she was walking, police say Moore began yelling at a nurse who was standing outside in a courtyard on break.

Moore then allegedly charged at the woman, grabbed her and punched her in the head while yelling about the medical profession. Police say Moore then smashed the woman’s face into a brick wall. Police say a person walking by spotted the attack and pulled Moore off of the woman.

“She beat the nurse up real bad,” said the suspect’s sister, Angel Moore. “Blood was everywhere. What made her do it? I don’t know. I know she was going through some mental problems.”

Ms. Moore, when the math is done, was 15 when her first [?] child was born. That could not have helped.

Pack of Young Women Attack Sarcastic Man on NYC Subway

“I just said, ‘Those girls must be retarded because they can’t hear each other talk,’” Carnegary recalled.

Within a second, the furious gals, whose ages range from 15 to 20, went berserk and started pummeling Carnegary with their fists.

He was trying to block the blows when he heard another girl yell, “Go for him” and a third girl say, “Cut him.”

One of his attackers plunged a knife into Carnegary’s left shoulder, leaving a wound that required seven stitches. “I didn’t think they were actually going to knife me. The oldest one didn’t look no more than 18 or 19. I couldn’t believe they did that,” he said.

Even creepier: the grins and joking around in the pictures.
