Tickle Me Elmo Doll Involved In Beating

A domestic argument left a man dazed last week after his estranged wife used a Tickle Me Elmo doll to club him on the head and knock him down, police said.

Heidi J. Souza, 34, of 1473 County Street, hit Thomas K. Souza, 34, of 206 Lepes Rd., so hard with the red furry doll that when a police officer arrived, a stunned Thomas Souza was bleeding from his left cheek.

Souza, who is separated from her husband, was charged with violating a restraining order and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
