Man Arrested for Stabbing Nurse at Torrance Hospital

A 38 year old man from Santee, California was arrested Sunday after he allegedly stabbed a nurse at a Torrance hospital. Authorities suspect that he may have been distraught about the haircut he recently received. His booking photo may be viewed on the link below:

The suspect, Thomas Robert Fredette, was arrested shortly after the stabbing the area of Carson street in Torrance. Fredette was said to have entered the hospital, gone around a weapons screening area and approached a group of hospital employees. Fredette then grabbed one of the nurses and stabbed her in the ear with an unknown sharp object which was in his possession. The nurse, who has not been identified by authorities is said to be recovering from her injuries.

All of us at wish this nurse a speedy recovery.
