Woman Who Stabbed Man's Head With Stiletto Fined $250
Warning: The following story may be distressing for some.
A woman has been let off with just a $250 fine after stabbing a stranger in the head with her stiletto heels in a random attack while celebrating her 21st birthday.
Jazzmin Fry attacked 19-year-old Kyle Johns at China Town Mall in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley in the early hours of February 24.
The 19-year-old's scalp had to be stapled back together after he was left lying barely conscious in a pool of his own blood.
"[She] comes to the middle of China Town with her heels in her hand and stabs me in the crown of my head," the 19-year-old told 9News.
Footage shows Fry advancing towards Johns, prompting him to retreat.
She proceeded to take off her shoe and threatened him, asking: "Want my f**king heel through your eyeball c**t?"
Fry pleaded guilty to the assault and a magistrate imposed a $250 fine. No conviction was recorded.
"It was a drunken act. It was my 21st birthday and it's not me. I don't know why I did that and I wasn't in the right mind frame," she said.
However, Johns is not satisfied with the result.
"[I'm] devastated to be honest. If the roles were reversed would I be getting pretty much the same slap on the wrist?" he told the publication.
Recounting the night of the attack on her son, Johns' mother Susan said it was "every parent's worst nightmare".
"I arrive panicked to the ER and the ambulance hadn't arrived. I'm then told ''he has been stabbed in the head'', now I imagine the worst and spiral - the emotions I experienced in 30 seconds can not be expressed," Ms Johns posted to Facebook.
"Worst case scenario. he could have lost an eye, suffered an internal bleed or worse - death from head injuries.
"It's time we focus on the fact that our young men are at as much danger as a woman who walks alone at night."
Jazzmin Fry has since lost her job as a property manager at real estate agency Ray White.
