Police in Ohio arrested anti-fur activist for stabbing another woman for wearing fur-lined boots.
The police in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, arrested Meredith Lowell after she attacked a woman in the Fairmount Presbyterian Church last Wednesday, WQAD reported.
Lowell allegedly walked up to a woman in the church and stabbed her without provocation.
The attacker stabbed the victim in the arm and abdomen, wounds that sent her to a hospital for treatment. The victim was treated and released with non-life threatening injuries.
Another member of the church congregation restrained Lowell until police arrived, according to the police report.
Police also say that they have had run-ins with Lowell before. She has an arrest record for attacking other people who were wear fur clothing.
In 2012 she was arrested and convicted of trying to hire a hitman to kill someone who she saw wearing fur.
However, it turns out that the victim in the church in this latest attack was not wearing real fur, but ersatz fur, on her boots.
Investigators feel that Lowell, who lives near the church, must have seen the woman in the boots walking into the church. Lowell is not a member of the congregation.
The church released a statement saying, “The congregation is grateful for all the gestures of support from the Cleveland Heights Community and interfaith partners. Please continue to pray for us.”
“Lowell, 35, was charged with felonious assault and attempted murder. She appeared in court via video on Thursday and her bond was set at $1 million. Her next court appearance is scheduled for Monday,” WWQAD reported.
