Law-Abiding Gun Owner Steps In To Confront Man Who Was Stabbing Woman

Posted on September 2, 2012


Texas (The Gaslamp Post) – An armed, law-abiding citizen with a gun, may have saved the life of a woman who was attacked by her son’s father outside of his school.  According to KENS-TV, the 38-year-old woman had just dropped her son off at school when she was stabbed several times in the neck and upper torso, this past Tuesday morning.

A man who happened to be passing by the school in San Antonio, and who also holds a concealed weapons license, witnessed the attack.  He reportedly drew his handgun on the woman’s assailant and ordered him to drop his knife.

He held the man until a police officer who had also just happened by, was able to take the woman’s attacker into custody.  Although the man tried to discard his knife by throwing it into some nearby bushes, it was quickly recovered.

The woman was rushed to the hospital where she is reportedly in critical condition.

Police have charged the man with aggravated assault but say that those charges may be upgraded if the woman’s condition worsens.
