Police say W. Memphis man tried to cut off girlfriend's head with handsaw

Posted By on Tue, Oct 7, 2014 at 2:01 PM

Police in West Memphis are looking for a man who they say tried to cut off his girlfriend's head with a handsaw yesterday. WMC News 5 has the report on the case, in which police say Devino Lee Dawson made two lacerations to the back of his girlfriend's neck with the saw, and cut her left middle finger down to the bone. 

When a WMC News crew showed up at the house where cops say the attempted assault allegedly happened, family members of the suspect cursed at them before one woman at the scene unbuttoned her pants and "mooned" the camera crew while they were filming. Hit the link for the video, with XXL-sized decency blur.
