(TX) CCW holder disarms knife wielding attacker

DENISON, TX-Bystanders rushed to the aid of a Denison woman who was stabbed during an altercation Monday afternoon.

The names of both people involved in the stabbing have been released.

Denison police say 64-year-old James Livingston of Sherman allegedly stabbed 31-year-old Sarra Armstrong of Denison. Investigators said bystanders got involved in the incident trying to protect Armstrong from further injuries.

 It was a typical Monday afternoon for John Polonchak until someone ran into his automotive store saying a woman had just been stabbed.

 "I had a concealed carry permit so I grabbed my weapon, ran down the road, saw a man down the street waving a bowie knife around chasing people," he said.

 Polonchak, along with several bystanders rushed to the woman's aid and worked to disarm the man.

"I kicked the knife out of his hand, kicked him in the face, pinned him to the ground and some other people helped me hold him there til the cops got there," he said.
