[Telegraph] A man suffered three sets of puncture wounds Sunday night when a former girlfriend allegedly stabbed him with a barbecue fork after police said he brought another woman to her cookout. The victim, Clarence Brumfield, 54, of the 1000 block of Alby Street in Alton, was treated at Saint Anthony’s Hospital’s emergency room, given antibiotics and released, said detective Sgt. Jerry Cooley of the Alton Police Department. “He brought his current girlfriend to the barbecue, went home and came back alone” to the cookout at the suspect’s home in the 1300 block of Central Avenue, Cooley said. At some point, the stabbing occurred, with someone calling 911 at 7:36 p.m. Sunday. The police report was incomplete Monday morning, as detectives had not interviewed the suspect. It is unclear how long Brumfield was at the house before the stabbing. Paramedics from the Alton Fire Department and LifeStar Ambulance Service responded to the call; the ambulance paramedics took Brumfield to Saint Anthony’s. “He suffered injuries to his upper right chest, his right biceps and right shoulder blade area,” Cooley said. Each injury consisted of a set of puncture wounds from the long, two-tined fork. Police had not charged the suspect with an offense as of Monday.
Clarence, you cocky son of a bitch. I’m not gonna hate on this guy’s brazen balls. What better way to set up a hate-sex romp with your ex than to trot around her cookout with a new broad? Obviously it’s a high risk/high reward situation but it’s not like Clarence wasn’t aware of it. He knows his ex and, at 54 years old, he’s been around the block a few times. He knows the best ex-sex always borders on the line of violence, and the easiest way to get it there is by pressing the jealousy button. The plan was executed to perfection, too. I don’t know exactly how he pulled off getting rid of the new chick to come back solo, but he did – and no doubt Miss Psycho Ex wanted a word or two with him inside when he returned. That’s all you can ask for in this scenario. Whatever happens next is anyone’s guess. Sometimes you get your dick fucked off while she berates her replacement, sometimes you get stabbed with a BBQ fork. And, to be honest, I wouldn’t be so sure both didn’t happen here. Good for you, Clarence.
