26-year-old serial killer David Berkowitz, originally Richard David Falco aka Son of Sam is attacked with a razor, almost cutting his throat, by an unidentified fellow-inmate in Attica Prison, Attica, New York, United States.

Berkowitz refused to identify the person(s) who had attacked him with a knife but suggested that the act was directed by the cult he once belonged to. He bears a permanent scar from the wound that took 56 stitches to close.
