Police in Virginia reported that three U.S. Marines stopped a stabbing at a Chick-fil-A location over the weekend.
Thief Gets Surprised by Three Marines
According to a news release from the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office, two men tried to steal a man’s phone at a Chick-fil-A in North Stafford last Saturday.
Ryan Wilbur, a public information officer for the department, said three Marines stepped in after hearing a struggle between the three males involved.
“On April 1st at approximately 1:41 p.m. Deputy E.E. Donkor responded to a disturbance at Chick-fil-a, located at 25 Dunn Drive,” he said.
“Witnesses advised one male was approached by two others. The three got into a brief argument before a physical altercation ensued.”
Knives Were Pulled on the Victim
Wilbur said one of the two males pulled a knife on the victim.
“Three nearby Marines quickly jumped into action and attempted to separate the parties,” Wilbur stated. “One of them broke the knife in half to prevent further harm, and the two suspects quickly fled.”
Sheriff David P. Decatur shared an image of the knife on his Facebook page.
The victim reported to law enforcement his phone was stolen during the altercation. A nearby deputy noticed two males fitting the suspects’ descriptions, and both the 14-year-old and 17-year-old were taken into custody and arrested.
The deputy found the victim’s stolen phone in their possession and returned it to rightful owner.
“Criminal complaints were filed for assault and battery, robbery, as well as, attempted felony wounding on the 17-year-old,” Wilbur said. “Criminal complaints were filed for assault and battery, as well as robbery on the 14-year-old.”
Thank You, Marines!
“Thank you to the hero Marines who stepped up in order to protect the victim,” Wilbur said. He concluded, “Without you, this altercation could have been a lot worse.”
