`A berserk Bronx woman who received a samurai sword as a Christmas gift used the blade to attack her mother yesterday during a fight over cigarettes, police and relatives said.
Erica Torres, 22, repeatedly cut her mother, Sylvia Pantoja, with the sword at about 8 a.m. after the mom attempted to stop Torres and her sister from arguing over a pack of smokes, police and relatives said.
“She just went lunatic on everybody,” said Torres’ 14-year-old sister, Jasmin Cabrera. “She was up until 2 saying she was going to kill everybody. Then she took the sword and went wild.”‘
If you give a sword as a present to a lunatic then I s’pose you reap what you sow. [shrug] 🙂
