Candy Cane Attack

APRIL 26--In the dark days of quarantine, a Florida Woman yesterday brought a little holiday spirit into her home by allegedly battering her boyfriend with a candy cane, according to a police report.

Cops say that Christina Zicuis, 35, got into an argument early Saturday morning with the victim inside a Clearwater residence. The pair quarreled “about Christina’s daughter who is not alive.”

The dispute turned violent when Zicuis stabbed the victim in the arm with a pen, causing him to depart the home. Zicuis then allegedly chased the man--who cops identified as her boyfriend of seven years--into the front yard and tossed a brick (which missed Zicuis's fleeing target). 

Zicuis then “threw a candy cane at the victim’s left arm, causing bruising and swelling to his elbow,” reported a Clearwater cop who listed “CANDY” as the weapon wielded by Zicuis.

Zicuis was arrested on felony battery and aggravated assault charges since she has a prior conviction for battery on a law enforcement officer. Her rap sheet includes convictions for theft; cocaine possession; prostitution; passing a bad check; probation violation; theft; and battery.

A judge released Zicuis early today from the county jail and ordered her to have no contact with the victim. (1 page)
