‘Zombie Apocalypse’: Lowpel Davis, Crazed Connecticut Wig Thief, Bites Store Owner and Cops
A Connecticut woman is behind bars after ‘going zombie’ on a store owner she attempted to rob as well as multiple police officers who arrested her.
NBC Connecticut reports that Lowpel Davis, a 38-year-old New Haven woman, stole a wig from the Sassy Beauty Supply shop on Chapel Street in New Haven on Tuesday afternoon. The owner of the store saw Davis enter with a juvenile girl and then noticed that a wig was missing from a mannequin.
A quick review of the store’s surveillance system confirmed that Davis indeed stole the wig and several other items, and he tried to stop the pair from leaving.
They pair of thieves managed to get out of the store, and the owner and his 70-year-old father gave chase. When they caught up to the pair, Davis, who police described as “crazed,” punched both men in their faces. She then bit a chunk of flesh from the store owner’s bicep and spit it back in his face.
Police arrived around 3:30 p.m. to find Davis in front of the Giaimo Federal Building. She tussled with federal protective service officers, biting them as well as New Haven officers who she also kicked and swore at.
After finally subduing the woman and placing her in a police car, she attempted to kick through the vehicle’s window.
The bitten officers were taken to local hospitals to have their bites evaluated; the store owner was treated for his bite and facial injury at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
Davis was charged with sixth-degree larceny, breach of peace in the second degree, criminal mischief in the first degree, assault in the second degree and two counts of assault on police officers. Bond was set at $150,000.
The New Haven incident was the latest in a wave of what some observers have dubbed the ’2012 zombie apocalypse.’
It all began over Memorial Day weekend when Rudy Eugene, a crazed, naked man, was spotted snacking on the face of a hapless old man on a causeway offramp. When police arrived, Eugene was unresponsive and kept chewing his victim’s face off. Even a bullet failed to stop his feast; it took three shots to put the “zombie” down.
After the Miami incident, Wayne Carter, a 43-year-old from Hackensack, New Jersey, disemboweled himself and threw his own skin and intestines at police officers as they forced entry into his home. Two cans of pepper spray did nothing to stop Carter; a SWAT team had to be called in to aid in his arrest.
Then came the most horrific news of the whole “zombie” wave: up in Montreal, a kitten-killing gay porn star named Luka Rocco Magnotta murdered a 33-year-old Chinese student named Lin Jun, beheaded him, cut him into pieces, sodomized the dead torso, ate pieces of his body, fed some of it to a hungry dog and mailed the victim’s hand and foot to the headquarters of Canada’s two main political parties. Magnotta, who was captured in Berlin, Germany on Monday, filmed the whole grisly murder and its aftermath and posted it online.
Last Thursday, Maryland police arrested Alexander Kinyua, who confessed to killing his roommate, cutting him into pieces, and eating his heart and brains.
Also on Thursday, New York police arrested Staten Island pizzeria owner Thomas Tomasello for biting off part of another man’s ear during a diner brawl.
That same day, the US government took the highly unusual step of issuing a statement denying the existence of zombies.
This past weekend, 43-year-old Carl Jacquneaux of Scott, Louisiana was arrested after biting a chunk from a man’s face in a domestic dispute.
And police in North Miami Beach, Florida arrested Brandon De Leon, a crazed homeless man high on bath salts, Xanax, marijuana and alcohol who threatened to eat and tried to bite the officers who arrested him on Saturday.
