Two Chicago sisters Jayla Hill and Jessica Hill have been denied bond after police say they stabbed a security guard nearly 30 times when he asked them to wear face masks, according to WTTW News.
Both sisters were arrested on October 27 on charges of attempted murder, the station reported. Police say the siblings entered a shoe store in Lawndale on October 25 when they stabbed a security worker at least 27 times over a mask dispute, the Chicago Sun-Times added.

“It’s the complete randomness of this. It’s terrifying,” Cook County Judge Mary Marubio said during the bond hearing on Tuesday, October 27, the newspaper reported.
When the 32-year-old man asked the women to put on masks and use hand sanitizer, a verbal dispute ensued, the Chicago Sun-Times said. Jessica and Jayla Hill refused to follow his requests.
Jessica Hill then started to stab the man with a “comb knife,” while her younger sister restrained him, the newspaper continued.
