Man Stabbed in the Eye With Pen at Comic-Con


Man Stabbed in the Eye With Pen at Comic-Con


Minutes before Universal's presentation of 'Cowboys and Aliens' with director Jon Favreau and Harrison Ford, a man was stabbed in the eye with a pen by another fan during a seating scuffle.

Beside all the great news, trailers and panel discussions at Comic-Con, the big event also brought a disturbing incident. On Saturday night, July 24 at around 4:00 P.M., a man in his 20s was rushed to hospital after around his eye socket was stabbed with a pen by another man, who is also in his mid 20.

USA Today reported that the stabbing occurred in Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center, minutes before Universal Pictures was to present "Cowboys and Aliens" with director Jon Favreau and actor Harrison Ford as the panels. According to witnesses, the scuffle broke out when the two men argued over a seat.

Because of the stabbing, the victim was seen having blood on his Harry Potter Comic-Con t-shirt, while onlookers stood horrified as the man was bleeding from his eye. Although he was said not losing his eye, he has a gnarly cut on his eye-lid.

The man with the pen, in the meantime, has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. The two men's identities have not yet been revealed. Sergeant Gary Mondesir of the San Diego Police Department, who was at the scene, told CBR, "This is extremely rare. The folks that attend here are extremely well behaved... We have no problem with the attendees of Comic-Con." Despite the stabbing, the presentations started again around 5:30 P.M.
