A Maryland woman was sentenced to seven years in prison following a cowardly unprovoked attack on a Taco Bell customer directly after a disagreement over service quality.
Caley Mason, 22, carried out the brutal attack, slashing Jason Luczkow, 48, from ear to Adam’s Apple, leaving an eight-inch wound that required over a hundred stitches, according to Oregon Live.
In the footage, Mason is seen slashing an unsuspecting Luczkow before running out of the store where her boyfriend and two children–aged 2 and 4–were waiting in a car for her.
Mason pleaded guilty in Clackamas County last month to second-degree assault.
The attack occurred on the night of July 26th when Luczkow and his wife stopped off at the franchise to pick up some food.
According to Luczkow and the Sandy Police Department, Mason had already begun ranting and raving over the alleged slowness of the Taco Bell staff.
Luczkow had objected to Mason’s loud complaints and then told her to “zip it.”
Mason briefly left the store after the interaction to retrieve the knife which she used to carry out the slashing.
On the assault, Luczkow said:
“She missed my jugular, missed my carotid artery by millimeters,” he told The Oregonian/OregonLive on Thursday. “It’s gruesome. It looks like I’m dead.
“Apparently, the management had already told her to leave
“As she continued to rant and rave, I told her to be quiet. Told her to zip it.”
Following the assault, Luczkow adds “My wife thought I was playing a practical joke with the hot sauce packets,” he said. “Needless to say, I didn’t get my order that night.”
Luczkow’s wife chased after the assailant–who almost ran her over with her car as she gave chase.
Police later pulled over Mason’s car, where Mason, her boyfriend, Phillip Thomas, and children remained inside.
Mason had removed her blonde wig.
The wig was later found stuffed down Thomas’ pants.
Thomas was arrested for tampering with evidence, but later had his case dropped.
Prosecutors said that Mason was on State supervision following an armed robbery on a pizza delivery driver.
Luczkow cheerfully remarked “I guess she gets to enjoy the scenery here for a few years” on Mason’s seven-year imprisonment with no chance of early release.
