Woman slashed with box cutter

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) —  A Rex Boulevard N.W. woman is home from the hospital after she was violently attacked in her home by an intruder on Friday.

Robin Redick, 50, is still in pain from the attack that has left her with slashes on her neck, arm, chest and stomach. At one point, she said she wondered if she might die.

“I worried about it because there was so much blood, but luckily it’s OK,” Redick said Monday.

Redick told police a man looking for Lawonda was knocking on the door at her home about 2 p.m. Friday. She said she told the man she did not know anybody by that name and when he asked her if she was Lawonda, they started arguing.

Redick said she told the man he needed to get off her property and that is when he pushed her down. She hit her head when she fell.

Redick said the man then began searching her house and when he came back, he jumped on her back and started cutting her.

“It was hurting. It was hurting. But once I kicked him, he took off. He could have done worse but he was slashing for no reason, different parts,” Redick said.

She said she hopes the person is caught, so that he doesn’t hurt someone else.

She described the suspect as a white man, about 30, 6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds with a slight beard. He was wearing a red parka jacket with a hood.

Anyone with information is asked to call Warren police at 330-841-2512.
