Woman Suffers Second-Degree Burns After Stranger Shoves Hat Full Of Glue On Her Head

Woman Suffers Second-Degree Burns After Stranger Shoves Hat Full Of Glue On Her Head

A woman suffered second-degree burns after someone shoved a hat full of glue over her head, and has now had to shave all her hair off.

According to newspaper Levante EMV, Marcela Tascon had been at her home in the municipality of Benaguasil, which is in the eastern Spanish region of Valencia, when a stranger knocked on the door at 9am.

Speaking through the video display connected to the entrance of her building, the man asked if she was Marcela Tascon, saying he had a present for her.

Tascon, 31, could see that he was holding a bunch of flowers, so decided to let him in.

Once he was upstairs and had rung the bell, she opened the door to find the stranger, who asked her again if she was Marcela Tascon.

Marcela recalled how the exchange instantly took a dark turn, saying: "Once at the door of my house, and in front of my eight-year-old son, he [the man] threw the flowers at my feet, called me a 'son of a b**ch', and pulled the hat over my head.

"He ran away, my son was shouting, very scared, and I rushed to the bathroom to clean up my head and asked my son to call the police or friends."

Tascon, originally from Colombian, was taken to hospital, where she was diagnosed with second-degree burns on her head thanks to the glue and 'abrasive substances' used in the violent attack.

She continued: "The doctor told me that this kind of attack is very common in Colombia, where it is called 'doing the shampoo'. It is commonly ordered by jealous wives after finding out their husbands had cheated on them or because they envy the other women."

Tascon, who owns a beauty clinic in the same building as her home, said she'd been receiving suspicious calls from an unknown woman.

While she doesn't know who the caller is, she said she recognised she had a Colombian accent, describing how the woman called a month ago to make an appointment at the salon and asked for the location.

Tascon said: "Two weeks later, I saw a suspicious man in my building holding a mobile phone and I asked neighbours if they were expecting a visitor."

On Thursday last week, Tascon then received a call from a woman believed to be the same person as before, this time asking if she could come to the salon for a treatment.

It was just minutes later that the man wearing the red cap appeared at her door holding flowers.

Tascon said she suspects the man was hired to attack her, but would not disclose any further details about her suspicions as the police investigation is ongoing.
