A Tennessee man is accused of slashing his boss’ throat with a steak knife on Friday after returning to work from time off to de-stress, according to local reports.

John Herren, 40, walked into his workplace, the civil engineering firm Dale & Associates, in Berry Hill, Tenn., carrying two knives, walked behind his supervisor’s desk allegedly grabbed his head and slashed his throat, The Tennessean reported, citing an affidavit.

Berry Hill Police reportedly recovered the dropped knife.

Doctors treated the supervisor at a nearby hospital for “superficial lacerations on his throat,” the Tennessean reported, adding that emergency medical services noted that the outcome could have been a lot worse since the cut was very close to a main artery.

Roy Dale, who owns Dale & Associates and was not injured, told WKRN-TV that Herren had worked at the civil engineering firm for over a decade as a designer.

The television station reported that Herren recently told his bosses he was feeling stressed and needed some time off.

“John was just expressing to us he was having a difficult time with that and was very stressed with that and really wanted to do something different with the company and we were happy to accommodate him,” the news station reported Dale said.

“But still he was struggling, and he took off and when he came back this happened.”

Herren reportedly was arrested “without incident” a short time after the alleged attack. He has been charged with attempted criminal homicide.

Herren did not have a previous arrest history in the state of Tennessee, WKRN reported, citing the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

NEW YORK — Two members of the far-right Proud Boys have been found guilty of charges including attempted gang assault for their part in a melee that followed a speech at New York‘s Metropolitan Republican Club.

A jury convicted Maxwell Hare and John Kinsman on Monday in connection with the October 2018 brawl between members of the all-male Proud Boys and the loosely organized anti-fascist group known as Antifa.

Lawyers for Hare and Kinsman said the men acted in self-defense, but prosecutors said they and other Proud Boys members started the physical fight.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said the defendants beat four people “in a brutal act of political violence.”

Cal State Fullerton employee stabbed to death on campus during first day of classes

Southern California university employee was stabbed to death Monday morning in what police believe was a targeted attack on the first day of the academic year, investigators said.

Fullerton police responded around 8:30 a.m. to a parking lot on the California State University, Fullerton campus to reports of an assault with a deadly weapon. A man in his 50s was found inside a car bleeding from his head with several stab wounds.

The unidentified man was a retired faculty member working in the international admissions department, police said. Investigators have not determined a motive for the killing, but they said they believed the victim was targeted.

“We don’t believe there is a random stabber on the loose at this particular time,” Fullerton police Lt. Jon Radus told the Los Angeles Times.

Messages left to a police spokesperson from Fox News were not immediately returned.

The suspect was described as a man in his 20s with black hair. Investigators were using bloodhounds to try and locate him.

Extra police patrols were ordered for the campus, located 40 miles south of Los Angeles.

Police said there was no active threat but told people to avoid the area where the stabbing unfolded. People with cars within the police investigation area will not be able to retrieve them, the school tweeted, “as this is an active investigation.”

A scheduled film shoot near the campus library was canceled, university police tweeted. The school is part of the 23-member California State University system and enrolled more than 39,000 students last year.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Wild confrontation over topless sunbathing on Connecticut beach leads to arrest

A confrontation over topless sunbathing in Connecticut led Monday to charges of breach of peace and risk of injury to a minor against a 28-year-old woman, according to a report.

Police said Anna Halderman, of Norwalk, was arrested Saturday after surrendering to police. The incident happened July 15 at Compo Beach in Westport, Fox 61 Hartford reported.

The investigation began with police saying they got a call from a woman who was at the beach with her young child, the station reported.

“The caller reported to officers that she had observed a female on the beach remove the top portion of her bathing suit to tan,” police said in a news release on Facebook. “Believing that this behavior was inappropriate for a public beach, this individual attempted to confront the woman about what she was doing.”

The complainant said Halderman appeared to her to be drunk, the news release said.

Jeffrey Epstein signed will 2 days before suicide, report says

Westlake Legal Group Jeffrey-Epstein1 Jeffrey Epstein signed will 2 days before suicide, report says Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox news fnc/us fnc article 8165f55f-e2b8-5f02-ae08-60f7dbcd6bf2

Disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein’s will has been filed in the U.S. Virgin Islands and it reportedly showed that he signed it on Aug. 8 — two days before investigators said he hanged himself in his New York City jail cell.

The accused sex-trafficker and convicted pedophile was worth $577,672,654, or about $18 million more than he previously stated in court papers when he had tried to land bail on federal sex-trafficking charges, The New York Post reported, citing new court documents.

EPSTEIN’S ATTORNEYS QUESTION AUTOPSY RESULTS

The Post reported the 66-year-old put all of his holdings in a trust, referred to as “The 1953 Trust” in court papers, named after the year he was born.

The 21-page filing reportedly included a copy of Epstein’s death certificate from Aug. 15, five days after his suicide, which noted: “Immediate Cause: Pending Further Study.”

It has since been ruled by the New York City medical examiner’s office that Epstein hanged himself in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. The report was released this past Friday.

FEDERAL AGENTS SEARCH JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S HOME IN VIRGIN ISLANDS

The 66-year-old’s will was reportedly filed with court officials in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where Epstein owned two islands, Little St. James and Great St. James.

Epstein’s Little Saint James Island in St. Thomas, took on a string of nicknames over the years, including “Pedophile Island” and “Orgy Island.

There were no details on the trust’s beneficiaries, the Post reported, adding that the court papers noted Epstein’s only potential heir was his brother, Mark Epstein.

The will reportedly said his brother had a claim to Epstein’s extensive holdings only if the financier did not leave behind the document.

Jeffrey Epstein’s girls left impression on charter captain, but disgraced millionaire was elusive

It was the summer of 2006 when Scott Schroeder got the call.

He and his friend Nick checked the gear, boarded their boat and headed straight for Jeffrey Epstein‘s infamous Little St. James Island. The two girls waiting for them near the millionaire’s private dock were dressed in short, silky Victoria’s Secret robes. There was Dana, a 5-foot-6-inch dark-haired beauty from New York and her friend Tatiana, a striking 6-foot blonde from Russia.

Epstein had left the island for the day and the girls wanted “something fun to do.” The caretaker paid Schroeder $130 to take them parasailing.

“I remember it vividly because I was young at the time and they were very cute,” he told Fox News. “They are hard to forget.”

“I remember it vividly… They are hard to forget.”

— Scott Schroeder, private charter captain 

Tatiana and Dana were 17. The age of consent in the Virgin Islands is 18.

EPSTEIN’S ATTORNEYS QUESTION AUTOPSY RESULTS

Scenes like this played out a lot over the years on Epstein’s island. There was talk that some of the girls were even younger.

Epstein, the disgraced New York financier, led an extraordinary life of wealth, power and extreme privilege on Little St. James, a 72-acre estate he bought in the U.S. Virgin Islands in 1998 for $7.95 million. It’s where he entertained the world’s most influential people, including presidents and princes. His parties were notorious not only for the caliber of crowd they drew but also for the alleged debauchery and criminal behavior that went down.

In neighboring St. Thomas, the young girls Epstein brought to his island weren’t a secret. In fact, he flaunted them.

Schroeder, who now runs Aqua Blue Charters in St. Thomas, said Epstein was having “a lot” of parties on his private island about 10 to 15 years ago.

“Everything was under the cuff with the NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) so you didn’t see the guests going out there, but his helicopter was flying a lot,” he said.

PAINTING OF BILL CLINTON IN BLUE DRESS AND HEELS HUNG IN EPSTEIN’S MANSION

Schroeder said one of Epstein’s helicopters was based out of Puerto Rico so he could fly his guests straight to his private island instead of putting them on a boat, but that toward the end, after Epstein went in 50-50 with New York real estate tycoon Andrew Farkas in 2007 to buy American Yacht Harbor, a 127-slip marina on the east side of St. Thomas, his preferred method was to ferry the girls to the island.

“This was happening as late as three months ago,” Schroeder said.

Around the time Epstein was purchasing American Yacht Harbor, his lawyers were cutting a deal with prosecutors in Florida to spare him from federal sex crime charges. He eventually pleaded guilty in June 2008 to state charges of soliciting a minor for prostitution. He spent 13 months in a county jail, though his lawyers negotiated a work release for him that allowed him to leave for 12 hours, six days a week.

In the Virgin Islands, the partying didn’t stop — though some, like Red Hook shop owner Lance Maanum, say it wasn’t as open as it used to be. Maanum said “we all knew something wasn’t quite right” with Epstein for a while, but after the Florida arrest Epstein “kept a low profile and was suspicious about everyone.”

Jon Stewart, a charter boat captain in St. Thomas, told Fox News he only saw Epstein once in 2 1/2 years.

“Unless you worked for him or at the airport you probably just heard rumors,” he said.

“Willie,” a construction worker in St. Thomas, was employed by Epstein. He told Fox News he had heard about what went on in “Pedophile Island” and struggled with working for Epstein morally, but that in the end it came down to feeding his family.

“He was a wealthy man and powerful. I worked for him so I could put food on the table,” he said. “I am not ashamed of that. We don’t have options for work here. What are you going to do? Are you going to give me a job?”

Epstein, who was arrested one last time in July, was awaiting trial on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges when he was found dead in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center on Aug. 10.

Locals say the way Epstein lived his life has left a mark on the island that will be hard to erase.

“We are the red-headed stepchild of the states because nobody ever talks about us,” Schroeder said. “It’s sad that this is the type of press that we get to bring into the news cycle.”

Locals are also quick to point out that most of the other mega-rich and powerful people in the area aren’t like Epstein.

“He’s the only one that we know of that was playing like that,” Schroeder said. “As far as we see from the outside looking in, the other investment bankers and others out here look like they are above board and if they’re not, they are being super discreet in such a small circle way that nothing touches them.”

California teacher, 24, gunned down ‘for no reason’ while sitting in truck with son, boyfriend, reports say

Police in California are on the hunt Monday for a gunman who they say shot and killed a 24-year-old middle school teacher over the weekend while she was sitting in a truck with her son and boyfriend.

Officers found Nancy Magaña wounded after being called to the scene of a shooting at Delmann Heights Park around 2 a.m. Saturday, the San Bernardino Police Department told the Los Angeles Times. The math teacher and volleyball coach, who family members and officials say started working at Del Vallejo Middle School just weeks ago, was taken to a hospital where she later died of her injuries. A description of the shooter was not immediately available.

“It’s just that somebody walked up to her car and shot her for no reason,” her sister Maria told the San Bernardino Sun. “That’s what makes it hard — there’s no reason.”

Nancy’s 5-year-old son and boyfriend were inside the vehicle at the time of the attack, but were not injured, according to FOX11.

“She didn’t get mad at anyone, she did not have any enemies and this was just a senseless act and it doesn’t make any sense that 30 students in six periods now don’t get to see her,” Maria Magaña said in a separate interview with the station.

Magaña, her boyfriend and son are reported to have visited a local Dave & Buster’s restaurant Friday night before visiting the park later on in the evening.

Maria Magaña told the San Bernardino Sun that her sister became a teacher to give back to the community, and spent her own money to decorate her classroom to welcome students on opening day this year.

“She was her son’s superhero. He thought that nothing could ever hurt her,” she added. “To him, she was the fastest and strongest, and everyone else came second… He always said ‘my mom’ is the No. 1 love of his life.”

The San Bernardino City Unified School District told FOX11 that crisis counselors will be on campus for students Monday.

California man claims he was beaten at bar after men confused him with child predator suspect

A California man says he was beaten at a bar last week after a group of men confused him with a child predator sought by police.

Kevin Martin, 34, told KTLA he was outside Slick’s Billiards in Norco, a city roughly 50 miles west of Los Angeles, on Thursday night when two men approached him and accused Martin of being the person wanted by police for allegedly making sexual comments to an 11-year-old girl in Corona in May.

One of the men “had his phone on him and he said, ‘This is you, isn’t it? We don’t allow your kind here,'” Martin told KTLA. “The other guy starts pushing me and says, ‘You know, I got a daughter.'”

Martin apparently looks similar to the 20-something male sought earlier this year by the Corona Police Department. Investigators put out a computer-generated composite image online that “depicts the general description of the suspect,” and the men seemingly thought Martin was that suspect.

The men allegedly strangled Martin and punched him at least 20 times, and Martin claims one of them told him “I kill people like this.”

The police department — which did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment — said Martin is not the man sought in the case from May.

Martin even reportedly saw the similarities between his appearance and that of the suspect’s — and commented on the department’s social media post saying he looked similar to the man and wanted to clear his name, according to the news outlet.

Anyone with information on the actual suspect wanted by police, described as thin with black hair and brown eyes, and who might own a golden retriever, is urged to contact the Corona Police Department at 951-736-2330, extension 3.

One of the men “had his phone on him and he said, ‘This is you, isn’t it? We don’t allow your kind here,'” Martin told KTLA. “The other guy starts pushing me and says, ‘You know, I got a daughter.'”

Martin apparently looks similar to the 20-something male sought earlier this year by the Corona Police Department. Investigators put out a computer-generated composite image online that “depicts the general description of the suspect,” and the men seemingly thought Martin was that suspect.

The men allegedly strangled Martin and punched him at least 20 times, and Martin claims one of them told him “I kill people like this.”

The police department — which did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment — said Martin is not the man sought in the case from May.

Martin even reportedly saw the similarities between his appearance and that of the suspect’s — and commented on the department’s social media post saying he looked similar to the man and wanted to clear his name, according to the news outlet.

Anyone with information on the actual suspect wanted by police, described as thin with black hair and brown eyes, and who might own a golden retriever, is urged to contact the Corona Police Department at 951-736-2330, extension 3.
