(CNSNews.com) – A 20-year-old woman in Pittsburgh was robbed, then attacked and mutilated by the assailant, who was angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on her car, according to a local television station.
WTAE-TV reports that the woman was robbed at knifepoint Wednesday night at an ATM outside of the Citizens Bank in Bloomfield.
After the robber stole her $60, the man became enraged by a McCain bumper sticker he saw on the victim’s car, and then punched and kicked her before using the knife to scratch the letter “B” into her face, according to Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard.
The attack occurred outside the view of the bank’s surveillance cameras, Richard said. The woman refused medical treatment after the assault.
The suspect is described as a 6 ft. 4 in. tall dark-skinned black man, weighing 200 pounds, with a medium build, and short black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing dark-colored jeans, a black undershirt and black shoes.
