Mother who slashed stranger’s throat during Taco Bell beef in Sandy sentenced to 7 years
A Taco Bell customer in Sandy received a seven-year prison sentence for slashing the throat of a stranger who objected to her invective-laced rant about the restaurant’s service – all of which transpired as her two young children and boyfriend waited in their car, authorities said.
Caley Mason, 22, of Maryland pleaded guilty in Clackamas County last month to second-degree assault in the brutal knife attack that left Jason Luczkow, 48, with an 8-inch gash from ear to Adam’s apple.
The beef began after Luczkow, a Sandy resident, said he asked her to stop berating the Taco Bell employees.
“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.”
Luzckow said his wound required more than 100 stitches. He recently grew facial hair to mask the scar, he said.
“I don’t particularly like having a beard,” he said. “But I didn’t like looking at myself either.”
