Jacoby Smith MySpace
St. Paul, MN (The Weekly Vice)- Jacoby Laquan Smith, a 33-year-old St. Paul man, is wanted by police after he allegedly beat up a quadruple amputee because she had blocked his view of the television.
According to St. Paul police, Smith reportedly pulled a 28-year-old woman out of her wheelchair and threw her to the floor, then punched her in the face more than 10 times - all because she "blocked the T.V."
The woman reportedly tried to reach for her keys and cell phone, a difficult task already because of her disability, however Smith took both items and confined her to the apartment he and the woman share.
Investigators say the victim eventually convinced Smith to take her to a gas station to get ice for her injuries. As she was paying, she was able to tell the clerk she needed police assistance. Smith overheard the conversation and fled the scene.
The victim says she now fears for her life because Smith still has her keys and cell phone, her only means of contact in the event of an emergency.
Smith faces charges of fifth degree assault and interfering with a 911 call. Anyone with any information on his whereabouts is asked to call St. Paul police at 651-291-1111.
