KEY WEST, Fla. – A male stripper from Tampa was arrested Monday in Key West after he stabbed his partner in both eyes and shoved a piece of wood down his throat, police said.
Justin Calhoun, 24, faces a charge of attempted murder in connection with the violent domestic incident.
According to a Key West police report, Calhoun admitted to attacking Mark Brann so severely that the victim was flown to a Miami hospital to be treated for his injuries.
Calhoun told police that he and Brann had a sexual relationship and that he often stayed at Brann’s home in Key West. Calhoun said he and Brann got into an argument because he believed that Brann was a “cannibal,” Detective Jeff Dean wrote in the police report.
Brann got angry about Calhoun’s accusation and picked up a gun that was on a bed where they were laying, Calhoun told police. Calhoun said the gun fired as he fought with Brann for the gun, but no one was shot, Dean wrote.
Calhoun said he took the gun and planned to shoot Brann, but the gun jammed, the report said. Instead, Calhoun said, he grabbed a pen and stabbed Brann in both eyes, the report said. Full Story »
