A man cut through his arms with saws at a Home Depot in West Covina, shocking employees and customers who saw the grisly scene play out at the busy store, police Wednesday night.
The man calmly walked into the store on Azusa Avenue shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday and grabbed the handsaws, the West Covina Police Department said.
"He just began sawing away," Cpl. Rudy Lopez told The Times. "He was pretty much intent on doing what he did."
The man cut both arms down to the bone as panicked people called 911 for help. The man was passing out as officers arrived, police said.
An off-duty Pasadena paramedic was inside the store and helped the officers round up twine and rags, which they used to fashion tourniquets to stop the heavy flow of blood, Lopez said.
The man was taken to nearby Queen of the Valley Hospital, where he was undergoing surgery. His condition Wednesday night was not immediately known.
Lopez said the store was shut down for the rest of the day.
NCAA decision clears The University of Tulsa; Case was classified as secondary by NCAA
Tulsa, Okla. – The University of Tulsa was informed today of the NCAA’s decision concerning an NCAA rules violation that involved former Athletics Director Ross Parmley. The NCAA’s enforcement department determined that with respect to institutional responsibility for violations, the case should be classified a secondary violation and that no further action need be taken by the university.
The actions of The University of Tulsa – specifically, the dismissal of Parmley and the enhancement of the school’s rules education program in relation to NCAA Bylaw 10.3 (sports wagering activities) – has been deemed sufficient by the NCAA.
“Obviously, we are pleased with the ruling handed out by the NCAA today,” said TU President Steadman Upham. “The University of Tulsa maintains the highest commitment to following NCAA policies and regulations among our administration, coaches and student-athletes.”
Success in the classroom and on the playing field has continued for Golden Hurricane student-athletes.
At the completion of the fall season, Tulsa was 18th in the Learfield Sports Director’s Cup Division I Final Fall Standings and 275 of nearly 400 student-athletes earned a grade-point average of at least 3.00. Tulsa teams have won Conference USA Championships this year in the sports of women’s basketball, men’s cross country, football, men’s soccer and women’s volleyball.
“The university’s priority remains to provide our student-athletes with the opportunity to compete at the highest level, while making progress toward completion of their degree in an environment consistent with high academic standards, a commitment to equity and diversity, sportsmanship, personal growth and development, and ethical conduct,” Upham said.
Just another normal day of practicing in the Food Lion parking lot.
