Women run out of beer; one gets slashed


A West Side woman said she was slashed by another woman early Monday after they ran out of beer.

The 44-year-old woman told police who were called about 5:30 a.m. that she had been drinking with another woman and her boyfriend at a 22 Millet Ave. home a few hours earlier and she decided to go to bed.

The other woman was upset, however, and slashed the victim with some type of razor before running away.

Reports said the victim and her boyfriend were still very drunk when police arrived, and the victim declined medical attention, even though she needed stitches.
