A man beheaded a young woman in the middle of the day while witnesses watched. The horror occurred in San Carlos, California at 11:50am Thursday just outside the victim’s home. Child Protective Services were called to take the victim’s two young girls, ages 7 and 1, who luckily did not witness the brutal death of their mother that occurred while they were inside the home. A dog and two cats were also saved from the home.

Law enforcement records indicated that just before noon reports came in that the woman’s head was cut off by a sword. At 12:14p.m. “children are there, scared to come…want their mom.” ABC7news reported sources said, “there was a history of domestic violence at the address where the woman was killed.”

Lieutenant Eamon Allen of the San Mateo Co. Sheriff’s Department said during a press conference police “arrived within minutes and found an obviously deceased female in the street in that area.”

“They began to work the scene and shortly then after, the male suspect arrived back at the scene and was quickly detained by sheriff’s deputies. He was later placed under arrest for homicide. We can confirm that a stabbing instrument was used in the commission of the crime. That weapon is still outstanding.”

ABC7 reported on a neighbor’s testimony:

Neighbor Chapel Thorborne described the disturbing scene he encountered as he was returning home around noon Thursday, only steps from his front door.

“The head was underneath the car and she was laying in the back of the car- just severed,” he described. “And they covered her up.”

Thorborne said he’s familiar with the couple, having briefly interacted with them a number of times. He said the last time he saw the man was just before the suspect was taken into custody.

“He was hurt, shocked, disappointed,” he said about the suspect. “You can tell when he walked by, I’m like, ‘Yeah, they cut somebody’s head off- just laying right there.'”

“After he cut her head off, he came walking up, him and his two friends,” Thorborne said. “And they walked right by me and they arrested him.”

The victim’s name is thus far being withheld until family is notified.
