Broward College Student Uses Scissors to Attack Woman on Campus

A student at Broward College South was arrested for attacking a fellow female student with a pair of scissors.

The student, who didn't know the woman, reportedly thought she and a male companion were laughing at him as they stood in front of a campus building.

So, he went off and found himself a pair of scissors, came back, and allegedly tried to impale the girl with them.

A totally reasonable response.

According to a BSO arrest report, Daniel Joseph, 29, of Sunrise, spotted Natalie Saint-Hubert, and her friend, Jude Jean, and walked up to them.

He then reportedly asked, "Why are you looking at me? Do you want to start something?"

Apparently, Joseph was not quoting a Michael Jackson song, but was pretty damn serious. To show how serious, he returned minutes later and ran at Saint-Hubert with a pair of scissors.

Saint-Hubert took off running, but Joseph eventually caught up to her. He then allegedly tried to stab her several times in the stomach.

Fortunately for Saint-Hubert, she was able to break free from him, suffering a scratch to her shoulder, but nothing more.

According to the report, Joseph dropped the scissors into a storm drain and ran off.

Cops eventually caught up with Joseph, and arrested him at the 7500 block of Polk Street in Pembroke Pines, which is about a mile from the Broward campus.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Joseph was previously convicted of grand theft. He also claims to have been vice president of the Gay Student Alliance at Broward College.

When he was being taken to jail, Joseph reportedly told cops, "They were laughing at me."

Joseph was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and evidence tampering. He was released on a $26,000 bond.
