Meet Jacoby “Boxing Helena” Smith. When his live-in lady blocked his view of
Masterpiece Theater the TV, he threw her to the floor and beat her. Did we mention that she’s in a wheelchair? Or that she has no arms or legs? Check out the flippy for the full story.
Jacoby Smith, 37, was charged Friday for beating up a woman and trying to stop her from calling 911. Neighbors thought the couple that lived inside the East St. Paul apartment on Jessie Street looked out for each other. Allegations of a brutal attack early Monday morning have changed their minds.
“He would be pushing her wheelchair and helping her out. I didn’t think something like this would happen,” Latonya Wulff, a neighbor said.
“A few times I helped her get her wheelchair out of the snow. She was a nice woman,” Darryl Dawson, a neighbor said.
All four of that woman’s limbs were amputated years ago, her arms below the elbow and her legs above the knee. Just before 7 a.m. Monday, she said her boyfriend, Smith, got mad that she was in front of the television.
According to the charges, he threw her to the ground and punched her in the face more than 10 times. She tried to get to the phone to call 911 but Smith swiped it and then blocked the door.
“It’s scary. Like I said, she’s helpless. She couldn’t fight him back,” Wulff said.
The woman eventually convinced Smith to take her to this Super America to get some ice for her injuries. She said she was finally able to get some help thanks to the clerk.
When she went to pay she told the clerk to call police. When Smith heard what she was doing he left the gas station. Police haven’t been able to find him since.
You better run, Sissyman.
