A 35-year-old Pontiac woman is in police custody, accused of robbing and stabbing a shopper at the Hollywood Market in Bloomfield Township (Michigan).
Shanekia Ballentine is now charged Felonious Assault and Armed Robbery. Police say Good Samaritans stopped her attack on the 56-year-old victim who was putting groceries in her car . . .
Laster, who is also a pastor, doesn’t see himself as a hero. He told 7 Action News that all of the Good Samaritans were all grateful to be at the right place at the right time.
You always hear stories from News Media about people doing nothing when they see others violently attacked.
Well, these people did something about it and stood up for the woman being attacked and apprehended the criminal armed with a knife.
Unfortunately, I doubt this story will make national news but it’s good to see folks standing up to those who threaten others even if it means putting their own personal safety and life at risk.
