‘Hitler’ Accused Of Stabbing Man At Utah Event Focused On Peace, Nonviolence
HEBER CITY (AP) – Authorities say one woman has stabbed a man at a gathering centered on peace and nonviolence in the Uinta National Forest.
Wasatch County Sheriff’s deputy Chris Goode says 32-year-old Leilani Novak-Garcia gouged the man twice with a knife at a campsite about 1 a.m. Monday.
His name was not immediately released. The woman, known to some as “Hitler,” had fled by the time officers arrived. She was arrested later in the day.
Forest rangers told investigators they earlier heard someone shout, “I’ll kill you.”
About 10,000 attendees are expected at the Rainbow Family Gathering before its keynote celebration July 4.
