Police: Hackensack man stabbed himself and threw intestines at officers

A Hackensack, New Jersey man stabbed himself repeatedly in front of police and proceeded to throw his own skin and intestines at officers from an open wound in his abdomen, police said. Wayne Carter, 43, had a knife in his hand and threatened to hurt himself when police arrived on the scene after getting a phone call at 10 p.m. Sunday night. The Bergen County SWAT Team had to be called in to subdue Carter and he was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center for emergency surgery. The Record has the story:

A man who stabbed himself repeatedly in front of police — and then threw his skin and intestines at them — remains in critical condition Tuesday morning, police said.

Police said they got a call at 10 p.m. Sunday from someone saying Wayne Carter, 43, had a knife and was threatening to hurt himself.

When police officers arrived at the Clay Street home, they kicked in a door to his room, which had been blocked with furniture, said Lt. John Heinemann.

Carter was in the corner of the room with a knife in his hand, and he stood up, he yelled at police while stabbing himself all over his body. Officers noticed that his intestines were protruding from a wound in his abdomen, Heinemann said. Carter allegedly threw some of his skin and intestines at officers as they tried to enter the room, Heinemann said.
