A 70 year old man with a woman in her 30s... most likely a sugar daddy who didn’t take kindly to her fooling around. When u play with fire...

Too bad she attacked him. Now he can file a similar criminal complaint. If the police do as they normally do, they will ask both parties to withdraw their complaints and the police will have successfully kept The crime rate low. If it isn’t reported (filed), it didn’t happen!

Stabbing with knives...looks like Iron Age. Next, we will use stones to beat each other, after that wooden sticks. Just let’s accelerate the development by climbing up the trees and fight about some bananas, beating the opponent with bare hands. The advantage is clear, it is less deadly then....lol

I am just happy the woman actually can defend herself and these men need to think twice before trying to attack them just because they think the women are defenseless. I always advice my little sister to have a knife or scissor in her bag. She study abroad and once in awhile meet weird perverts when she walk to her apartment at night.

Better that than guns, or we'd be reading about two deaths, not injuries.
