article imageReal-life Cookie Monster almost asphyxiates roommate

Decatur - In a story so bizarre it's hard to believe, a 23-year-old Illinois man — Allen Hall — has been charged with attempted murder as well as assault and battery after attacking his female roommate.
The violent incident, which occurred nearly a week ago, was sparked when the 49-year-old victim admitted to eating three of the assailant's Chips Ahoy cookies for breakfast without his consent.
Hall allegedly flew into a rage upon learning of the unsanctioned consumption and viciously charged at his roommate while she changed in the bathroom of their shared residence.
Knocking the woman into the bathtub, Hall mounted the victim and began choking her with both hands until she struggled to breathe.
He may have eventually killed the woman had it not been for the intervention of the landlord who — with the help of the victim's husband — managed to pull Hall off the woman and restrain him until local authorities arrived.
Fortunately, the victim only suffered minor physical injuries, including a bump on the head from hitting the bathtub and contusions from the attempted strangulation — though the psychological trauma associated with the attack may put her off from eating chocolate chip cookies in the future.
At this time, the real-life Cookie Monster is being incarcerated at Macon County Jail on $75,000 bond.
