In a child’s sporting event, a Californian man chased his estranged wife into the field with a kitchen knife
Police said on Saturday that a man in California was arrested after using a kitchen knife to chase his estranged wife into a field during a child’s sports event.
Garden Grove Police Department officials said that around 7 pm on Friday, when the mother watched the child warm up in a field in Garden Grove, the child reminded her father to come from behind her.
The mother turned around and saw her estranged husband walking up and down with a kitchen knife in her hand.
She stood up, ran to the sports field, screaming for help as he chased.
The police said that the child’s coach and a police officer on duty immediately rushed to the man, took him to the ground and disarmed him so as not to harm the woman. They were able to keep him restrained until the police arrived at the scene and arrested the man, who was identified as 43-year-old Russell Husges in Anaheim.
It is not clear what triggered the attack, which took place during several youth sports competitions held at Chapman Stadium in Garden Grove.
According to the records of the county prisoner, Husges was booked to the Orange County Jail. He was released on bail on Saturday with a bail of $500,000.
