NORTH BAY – At 8:47am this morning, a local mime has been arrested after going on a stabbing spree.
“It started normal enough,” recounts eyewitness Morgan Smalls. “He (the mime) was pretending to be trapped in a box. Then he pulled himself around by an invisible rope. All pretty solid space work. Then someone walked through his box and the mime just snapped. I guess at the end of that rope he pulling was a knife, because he just went off with it.”
The spree lasted for 2 hours before the police apprehended the mime, who was identified as Kristopher Harland (37). Twelve victims were left mildly annoyed.
“I was just walking to work,” says victim Jane Richards. “Next think I knew this mime is lunging at me, stabbing with what I instantly knew was supposed to be a knife. Very solid space work.”
North Bay Police Sergeant Jake Henson was first on scene, and was responsible for the arrest.
“Some might take this lightly, but he had the power to make people believe the knife could be real. If there was even a fraction of a chance that he could make that knife real, we have to take it as an absolute certainty. It was some really solid space work.”
A court date is yet to be set for Harland with no bail fixed as of yet.
