Girl, 9, Stabs Mom’s Assailant In Wis.
FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) – A criminal complaint says a 9-year-old girl stabbed a Fond du Lac man in the back as he threatened to kill the girl’s mother.
Twenty-seven-year-old Jason Fields is charged with first-degree recklessly endangering safety, strangulation and disorderly conduct. Bail was set at $5,000, and Fields remained in jail Monday.
According to the complaint, police were called to the woman’s home early Sunday after Fields broke her windshield.
The Reporter of Fond du Lac says after police left, Fields held a knife to the woman’s throat and threatened to kill her. The woman heard Fields groan and he dropped the knife. She saw her daughter holding a bloody kitchen knife.
The girl told police she had stabbed Fields in the leg two years earlier when he also was hurting her mother.
