Chief Tango sends us our feel good stories for this Sunday morning. the first is from Florida where an elderly man was being stabbed at a bus stop;
Josh Juliano happened to be driving to work when he saw the man being stabbed along South Orange Avenue.
“He was an elderly gentleman. He just had his hands out in front of him, and the guy at that point, was just slicing his hands. He had a 4-inch black knife that he was stabbing him with,” said Juliano.
He quickly tried stopping the attack by the bus stop when another man showed up with a gun.
“The other gentleman who got out to help, had his weapon drawn. He got him to the ground; we got the knife away from him,” he explained.
Deputies arrested 50-year-old Thomas Thorpe who was being held at gunpoint.
“I know, when he saw the gun, his face was priceless,” said Juliano.
The second story comes from Oregon where two fellows called the cops because someone fired a gun at them while they were assaulting him;
[Joseph E. Killingsworth] and [Johnny R. Moore] took turns hitting the victim with the bat, causing extensive head, face and back injuries, the sheriff’s office said.
In an attempt to escape after the attack, the victim grabbed a shotgun from his home and fired two rounds into the air, the sheriff said.
The two suspects fled to a nearby residence and called police to report that they had been shot at.
