FT LAUDERDALE, FL – In one of the most disturbing cases to date, a Fort Lauderdale man allegedly went on a rampage, drastically assaulting two women and a child. The details are beyond disturbing.
The man screamed at a woman, demanding to know what she did with his mother. But she was his mother.
The woman reportedly slipped in a puddle of her own blood as she tried to escape from her son, Pierre Francois, as his girlfriend held onto their child in the next room.
Police say that Francois clubbed the woman with a two-by-four piece of lumber.
Francois’ mother, whose name was not released, escaped the home and ran to neighbor for help. Both her arms were fractured and her thumb dislocated.
Those injuries sound incredibly disturbing, but what happened with his girlfriend and their baby is worse.
Court records allege that Francois cut his girlfriend’s throat, then repeatedly stabbed her in the eyes, blinding her.
Records also show that it appears that he bit off the nose of his one-year-old daughter before throwing her through a window.
Broward County Sheriff’s Deputies reported that the one-year-old baby girl was found lying face-down in the yard of the family’s home.
Francois’ girlfriend and child are hospitalized with life-threatening injuries. The baby’s mother is not expected to be able to see again. She also has a lacerated trachea and liver among other injuries.
The baby is intubated and has traumatic brain injuries and is unresponsive.
Francois, who is 29-years-old, is in jail on two counts of attempted felony murder and one charge of felony aggravated assault.
Sergeant Don Pritchard of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office explained:
“The infant suffers from what appears to be a skull fracture, as well as it appears that (her) nose was bitten off.
“This was a very, very gruesome scene that the deputies encountered, and it was caused by a family member.”
Francois’ mother told police her son is a diagnosed schizophrenic and has not been taking his medication.
She said she believes her son may have been having an episode, according to the arrest report. She also stated he could have been under the influence of a controlled substance at the time of the attack.

Francois’ mother told investigators that she awoke in the early morning to find her son punching the walls and doors of the house, where they’ve lived for about five years.
She told him to stop or he would hurt himself, but he turned his rage on her — striking her repeatedly with the large piece of wood.
She tried to use her forearms to deflect the blows, resulting in injuries to both arms and her face.
Francois’ mother said she could hear the young woman scream “don’t hit us,” when he turned on his girlfriend and daughter, according to court records.
That’s when his mother escaped and ran for help, banging on a neighbor’s door.
The neighbor, who asked that she not be identified because of concerns for her safety, rushed the woman in and called 911.
Deputies arrived about 6 a.m. to find the child face-down in the front yard and Francois leaving the home.
Records say when deputies ordered him to stop, he assumed a fighting stance before running away.
Authorities found a knife on the floor just inside the doorway of the home.
Francois was arrested and taken to Broward Health Medical Center. He had cuts to his legs and shoulders. The report did not indicate whether he had wounded himself.
As for the neighbor, she told police that she is still processing what she witnessed that day.
