A female sergeant sheriff deputy from San Bernardon County Ca. is in critical condition after being stabbed several times by a male suspect in the city of Rancho Cucamonga. The sheriff deputy whose name we do not know was responding to a 911 call when according to CBS Los Angeles,
“Sheriff John McMahon says the sergeant responded Monday morning to a call in Rancho Cucamonga after a man told dispatchers he had been abducted.
“The call came from outside the Hobby Lobby near Haven Avenue and Foothill Boulevard, according to San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials.
“McMahon says the sergeant was speaking with the man when a fight broke out between them.
“He says the sergeant was stabbed multiple times but was able to draw her weapon and fired at the suspect.
“The suspect – who was reportedly wearing pajamas at the time of the incident – wasn’t hit by the gunfire and was later taken into custody.
“McMahon says the sergeant was stabbed in the shoulder and had lacerations on her face and head. He says she’s expected to survive.”
This is a shame and unacceptable. This man must have been on something or he is just a crazy fool. The sheriff deputy was trying to help but instead, she ended paying the price. Being a first responder is one of the most dangerous jobs.
As citizens, we tend to forget exactly how often they put themselves in harm’s way to keep us safe. We should all take a second to thank them for all they do. We know if it was not for them we would be less safe. Who would dare stand up to the criminals? Most likely not a lot of people would and most could not do it on a daily basis. One can only hope that the sheriff deputy will make a full recovery.
