WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Police released 911 calls from what they called a random knife attack outside of a pharmacy in West Hartford.

Gloria Drummer, 57, was arrested for stabbing a woman in the head with a butcher knife last Thursday.

“Can you send a police officer to CVS in West Hartford?” said a 911 caller. “A young lady was just attacked by somebody standing outside.”

Police said Drummer waited for the 27-year-old victim outside the store with an 8 to 10 inch knife.

The victim walked out with a man and that’s when police said she was attacked.

“She’s on the ground,” the caller said. “The guy is putting pressure on her head.”

The dispatcher asked the caller about the suspect’s location.

“She’s across the street waiting for you all to come get her,” she said. “She said come get her, she don’t care. Take her to jail.”

The caller was heard asking the victim and the man whether they knew Drummer.

“They don’t know the lady that did it, no,” the caller told the dispatcher. “[The suspect is] sitting across the street.”

The caller proceeded to tell police that the blade was left on the ground following the attack.

After that, the woman on the phone can be heard urging eyewitnesses to stay away from Drummer. 

“A customer was about to go across the street and do something,” the caller said. “I said ‘no.’”

Drummer was reportedly seeking cigarettes and mumbling beforehand. Eyewitnesses said she seemed emotionally disturbed.

“I don’t believe this lady,” the caller said. “She’s sitting right across the street on the bench.”

Drummer was charged with first-degree assault and breach of peace.
