Sometimes, that thing that hides inside your closet might be more dangerous than an actual monster. A woman from Pennsylvania found this out the hard way after she had to be rushed to the hospital after her encounter with the would-be closet monster. According to the Pennsylvania authorities, a man was recently taken into custody after he hid in his estranged wife’s closet and beating the living daylights out of the woman and her boyfriend.
Pennsylvania Man Shows That Closet Monsters Are Real
On the subject of things you don’t read about every day, we give you the story of Jason William Beck, a 36-year-old Norristown resident, who broke into his estranged wife’s house in order to settle the score with the woman.
According to the Norristown authorities, Beck broke into the woman’s house on Monday morning and waited for the woman and her new boyfriend to come home. For the surprise to be even bigger, Beck decided to hide in the woman’s master bedroom closet and wait for them there.
Several hours later, Beck’s estranged wife and her boyfriend got home and, after spending some time around the house, they’ve decided to retire to the bedroom. As soon as the woman’s bedroom door closed, Beck sprang out of the closet in order to catch the two in the act.
What a Scorned Husband Can Do When Words Fail
Instead of confronting his wife and talking things over, Beck maced both his wife and her boyfriend. After blinding them, the Pennsylvania deranged husband savagely hit them with the baseball bat he was carrying and, according to the authorities, he also stabbed them a couple of times before leaving.
At the time Beck assaulted his estranged wife and her boyfriend, there were three children inside the house. Fortunately, Beck had a beef with the man and the woman and did nothing to hurt the children. It’s not yet clear who called the authorities after Beck’s attack, but the man was taken into custody without any incidents.
According to the Norristown Police Department, the man’s estranged wife and her boyfriend were rushed to the local hospital, where they received treatment for their wounds. The ER doctors said that the wounds sustained during their encounter with Beck are not life-threatening and that they will make a full recovery.
As for the baseball-swinging Pennsylvania man, he was arrested just outside the woman’s estate. For his deeds, Jason William Beck of Norristown has been charged with burglary, aggravated assault, making terroristic threats, and trespassing.
