Wizard of Oz character stabs man in Times Square

Fans of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz may be disappointed with the latest story of escapades perpetrated by the beloved 'Tin Man' character. A man dressed as the character, who is made entirely of tin, stabbed a Times Square visitor with a screwdriver.

The conflict, according to a popular New York tabloid, was sparked by a turf war which erupted between two street performers in the popular tourist destination. The man got into an argument, it has been reported, with a CitySights employee.

"It was a scuffle going back and forth on the ground," said a witness who observed the entire ordeal. "The silver guy got up and took off."
