A porn star on the run after allegedly killing a co-worker and injuring two others in a deadly a sword attack has been charged with murder and five counts of attempted murder.
Although he is still at large, prosecutors in Los Angeles have charged Stephen Clancy Hill, 34, aka Steve Driver, with the murder of Herbert Hin Wong, 30, aka Tom Dong.
Hill, who once played a character based on President Barack Obama in an adult film, is accused of stabbing Wong in the stomach at the offices of porn company Ultima DVD, based in ‘Porn Valley’, on the edge of Van Nuys in the San Fernando Valley.
Eric Jover, owner of the company, has announced a $20,000 reward for information leading to Hill’s arrest, according to the Ultima DVD web site.
Hill had been living at the warehouse-style office and was about to be fired and evicted, according to police
Wong is believed to have fought with Hill and to have helped other stars and company employees escape his attack.
The two victims who survived the attack have not been identified.
A Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) homicide spokesman said: ‘Without provocation, Hill became enraged and armed himself with a sword, typically used as a prop, which he then used to attack one victim.
“Two additional victims attempted to assist the first victim. One of these victims sustained the fatal wound.’
