One client took this salon's name too literally.

Jelena Monique Taylor, 44, allegedly broke into Rage Salon in Corvallis, Oreg. early Tuesday morning and went on a rampage, according to KMTR.

Police say Taylor punched out the glass pane in the front door, then reached in to unlock it, but in the process cut herself on the glass. When officers responded to the burglar alarm, they saw blood splattered throughout the salon, covering furniture, walls and equipment. Various pieces of salon equipment had also been smashed and broken.

Taylor was allegedly found naked, hiding in a closet. Lt. Ben Harvey of the Corvallis Police Department told the Corvallis Gazette-Times that it was "apparent" the woman was high on meth.

"I think, she kind of, in her madness, started flailing around and splattered blood everywhere," salon owner Kayley Kampfer told KVAL. "It looked like to me, she started in the hallway and started grabbing everything she could, started throwing things and there were broken vases, and a broken dryer. … The toilet, the shower, everything was covered in blood. It looked like a murder scene."

The alarm panel had been torn from the wall and hidden under a blanket.

Kampfer told KMTR that Taylor was a former client. "I just had this epiphany that her life is in a bad spot … I would just like to see [Taylor] get some help," said the salon owner, who estimates the total damage at about $5,000.
