45-year old Janice Smith was arrested this morning by officers of the Detroit Police Department, for allegedly capturing numerous squirrels and training them to attack her former lover.
The victim, 51-year old James Robinson, was presumably attacked by the rodents on more than a dozen occasions over the last month.
These attacks caused him many serious injuries, including the loss of two fingers and one testicle, bitten off by his attackers.
The poor man had no idea why squirrels kept attacking him until he saw his ex-girlfriend, a former circus animal trainer, cheering the animals during one of the attacks.
“She was partially hidden behind some bushes, but I could clearly see her and hear her. She was yelling orders at the squirrels and telling them to attack me.”
A bikini-clad Swedish police officer has been praised for tackling a suspected thief while she was off-duty sunbathing with friends in Stockholm.
Mikaela Kellner told the Aftonbladet daily that she and a fellow officer pursued the man when they realised he had taken one of their mobile phones.
She told the paper that she would have intervened “even if she were naked”.
A photo of the incident on Ms Kellner’s Instagram page has attracted more than 9,000 likes in less than two days.
The incident is said to have taken place in Stockholm’s Ralambshov Park on Wednesday, where the off-duty policewoman was sunbathing with friends.
The group was approached by a man who claimed to be selling publications on behalf of the homeless.
