Florida man Edmund Clarke attempts to decapitate himself with scissors in a supermarket

A Florida man stabbed an acquaintance 40 times with scissors in an attempted decapitation at a supermarket, officials said.

According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Edmund Clarke, 36, entered the location with the son of an elderly man for whom he serves as a caretaker.

Video of Monday’s incident shows Clarke suddenly grabbing a pair of scissors he spotted in the store and lunging at the victim as the gory attack unfolds.

MPs said Clarke allegedly hacked at the man to behead him – and grabbed other knives he found in the shop during the incident.

Clarke’s alleged assault lasted several minutes before police arrived at the scene. The victim was taken to a local hospital with serious head, neck and upper body injuries.

The attack was captured by the store's video cameras.
