Dorothy Cooper

*It started as a neighbor asking another neighbor for money.

Dorothy Cooper, 61, went to her neighbor’s house in Oakland Park,  Florida to ask if she could borrow $2.  When the neighbor refused, Cooper then upped the ante and asked for $5.

After the neighbor turned her down a second time, Cooper whipped out a large steak knife and stabbed her neighbor several times, apparently “outraged” at his refusal.

According to an arrest report from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Cooper stabbed her neighbor as he was chasing her out of his house.

Cooper then chased her neighbor into the street until he collapsed, and “left him there for dead.”

The victim sustained stab wounds in the back and the buttocks and was taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition.

Police took Cooper into custody, but she told officers she was provoked after the neighbor asked her for sex and struck her in the face.

Cooper eventually admitted that she had stabbed her neighbor for not giving her the $2 or the $5, according to the police report.

Cooper was booked into the Broward County Jail on an attempted murder charge.
