Atlanta Neighbor Hears Screams, Shoots Man Stabbing Three Women In Their Apartment Complex

An Atlanta-area neighbor rose to the challenge and became a “Good Samaritan” and stepped in when he “witnessed a man stabbing three women in their apartment complex.” As reported, Josh Dobbs told FOX 5 “he jumped into action when he heard a woman’s screams coming from the Hidden Lake Apartments in Union City on Saturday.”

The reporting elaborated: “two women had already been attacked and the suspect had begun stabbing a third victim when Dobbs stepped outside.” Some of the details of the horrific event included that the responding officers “found a female with stab wounds lying between cars. Another woman who had stab wounds and the suspect, who with gunshot wounds, were found behind the apartment.”

When Dobbs described to the police his shooting of the attacker, Dobbs told FOX 5: “I just couldn’t sit there and watch and hear what was going on.” Cpt. Prentice Brooks described Dobbs as “an onlooker” who had seen the assault taking place. The “onlooker stepped up to stop the threat.” Cpt. Brooks affirmed that Dobbs shot the suspect and added, “We actually commend him for what he did and stepping up.”

As reported, “one of the women died from her stab wounds. The suspect, meanwhile, was taken to the hospital where he died from his injuries. The violence appeared to stem from a domestic dispute. An investigation is ongoing.”
