A real-life "Grinch" was recently caught on home surveillance video stabbing a Frosty the Snowman inflatable in St. Louis, Missouri.
The homeowner, Jeff Diggs, posted footage of what he satirically described as the "mob hit-style assault" to YouTube on Tuesday, Dec. 6.
He titled the video, "Grinch Shanks Frosty! Not So Merry Christmas."
The video appears to show an individual, who Diggs calls the "Grinch," drive up to his front yard in a dark-colored pick-up truck. The "Grinch" is then seen exiting the vehicle before running up to Frosty and stabbing him in the "right side of his abdomen," Diggs wrote in the video's description.
Frosty can then be seen slowly deflating in the video.
Though the "Grinch" got away, he didn't manage to deflate Diggs' holiday spirit and joy.
Diggs told ABC News that Frosty is repaired -- he received a total of nine stitches -- and is once again greeting people in the yard.
"He is doing well and recovering from his injury," Diggs wrote in the YouTube video's description. "He insisted on going back to work immediately because he believes in the magic of the holiday season and hopes that all people will come together and learn to love and respect each other regardless of our differences!"
Diggs also noted that he has set up a GoFundMe page "to help Frosty spread the magic of the holiday season." He wrote on the campaign's description that all donations would be given to a local Christmas charity that "has been helping to brighten the holidays of local people and families in the St. Louis region for the last 16 years."
A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police Department of St. Louis told ABC News today that Diggs has not filed a police report as of this afternoon.
