VIDEO: Man Attacks Deputy with Knife
Seconds into the call the deputy is stabbed at family's doorBy Calibre Press | Apr 23, 2015
“It’s beautiful evidence. When you can show a jury or a judge exactly what happened at the scene and what the officer was faced with and why he chose whatever course of action he chose, a picture’s worth a thousand words,” said Sgt. Bernie Maness with the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office.
Two deputies responded to a call from a concerned family member and in seconds that simple call turned violent. The suspect walks out of the home and stabs one of the deputies. Luckily, the deputy’s vest stopped the knife.
“To see it, you realize the guy’s intent was to harm this officer. And to stab him in the upper chest with a knife is pretty serious attempted injury,” Sgt. Maness said.
Ironically, the sheriff’s office is only testing two body cameras and one caught the attack on video.
