Robert William White, of Glendale, California, screamed ‘God loves you all,’ as police wheeled him out of his apartment. ‘I hate you and I want to kill you today,’ he told the elderly woman before he attacked her, police said. He admitted to taking bath salts mixed with soda before the assault.
This is the stark-raving madman police say bashed a 77-year-old woman in the head with a shovel after he got high on bath salts, a terrifying new drug that’s legal in most places.
Robert William White, 20, is pictured screaming ‘God loves you all!’ as police wheel him out of his apartment on Thursday.
Officers say White claimed was an alien and that we was speaking directly with Jesus Christ because of the drugs he took.
‘He seemed completely out of sorts,’ said Northwest Glendale Police Lt Bruce Fox speaking to the paper.
White was holed up for nearly an hour before police were able to enter his apartment with a key and subdue him using a 40mm rubber bullet and Taser.
Until then, a resident nearby, Abraham Cabrera, said that he had heard White screaming profanities and threatening to kill someone while glass broke.
Carried out of his apartment handcuffed, while strapped to a wheelchair, witnesses reported him yelling: ‘God loves you all.’
The woman hit with the shovel was taken to an area hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police told the Glendale News.
The victim’s name has not been released.
