“I wasn’t particularly good at it.” It did not appeal to me. It was excruciating for me.”

Welch reasoned that the pain stemmed from her belief that she had nothing to offer a company whose primary concern was beauty.

Around 12:40 a.m. EST, Welch was returning from late-night grocery shopping.

Only one of the men was apprehended by police, a 17-year-old named Elvin May from Brooklyn.

On the basis of the witnesses, the court later charged him with two counts of robbery.

The Cocoon actress was taken to New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center following the attack, where she was treated for lacerations above her right eye that required several stitches.
