A trip to a haunted house in Ohio turned into a real-life nightmare for an 11-year-old boy over the weekend.
Police say an actor at the Berea Fairgrounds haunted house used a real knife and stabbed the boy’s foot.
22-year-old Christopher Pogozelski was arrested and charged with negligent assault.
According to authorities, the actor would normally be using rubberized props to try and scare people, “but in this case, he did have a real Bowie Knife.”
