A man from Pennsylvania man is accused of slicing his girlfriend's hand and leg with a razor blade while she was unconscious. The victim had passed out after getting her palm cut during a violent altercation with the suspect, Kyle Parker.
The day after the incident, according to WPXI, the woman returned to Parker’s home to retrieve some of her personal belongings. When she did, Parker allegedly told her, "By the way, I sold your soul to the devil."
Parker has been arrested on assault and harassment charges. He is in jail in lieu of $75,000 bond, according to Trib Live.
According to police, he told him that the cutting was part of a satanic ritual. It is unclear if Parker has a lawyer who can speak to his defense. One neighbor, though, said that he doesn’t think Parker, 21, is satanic at all.
“I do think he just goes for shock value,” neighbor Mike Bazala told Channel 11. “I don’t think he’s actually a satanic cultist. I just think he wants people to be scared of him and fear him.”
That neighbor said he wasn’t shocked to hear that Parker was arrested on such allegations.
Rodney Mahinske of the North Huntingdon Police Department called Parker “different” and “off the wall.” He told WPXI, "I mean, we've had some strange things, but this is getting up there in unique.”
Bazala said that he is used to Parker’s troubles.
“Honestly, we've lived next to him for a long time, and it's just become normal.”
Police said that Parker has been arrested after similar incidents in the past, ABC 13 reports. However, it was “nothing to this level."
In 2006, he was sentenced to serve up to two years after shooting his roommate with a sawed-off .22-caliber rifle before stealing Christmas gifts. Parker referred to that incident, one he took a plea deal for, as an accident.
