Burglar Shoots Man with Semen-Filled Squirt Gun
A Bellingham, Washington man will serve a year and a half in prison after pleading guilty to shooting a man with a semen-filled squirt gun during a burglary. Eric Miller and 2 other men, who have not yet been identified, broke into an apartment and began beating the victim. After beating him and demanding money, Miller sprayed the man in the face with the squirt gun in question. From the Bellingham Herald:
A man sleeping on the couch awoke to find two men pinning him down and beating him. Aiming handguns at him, they demanded to know where the sleeper’s roommate had gone, because he owed them money, “possibly for drugs,” according to charging documents filed in Whatcom County Superior Court. They held knives to his throat and hairline.
Throughout the assault the man lost consciousness several times. But at one point, he caught a glimpse of Miller’s face under the mask. He recognized him. Miller pistol-whipped him with a real handgun, according to the charges. Then he took out a squirt gun and sprayed the man in the face.
“Now you’re like the rest of my (expletives), covered in semen,” Miller said, according to court records.
Miller took the man’s money and wallet, according to prosecutors. A witness reported seeing four men running from the scene. Police showed up to find the unit unlocked, ransacked and full of overturned furniture. Nobody was home.
A few minutes later the victim – a man who had past run-ins with the law – called police from Ferndale. He claimed he feared the men might come back, so he’d fled.
Officers recovered a bandana and a squirt gun from the scene. A substance in the gun tested positive for semen.
