Horrific video gets justice for stabbed teen – and HEROES who saved her

Justice may finally come for a teenage girl who was brutally attacked along with several witnesses who tried to save her from a madman in March 2013.

The horrific incident was caught on video surveillance and shows knife wielding Leon Walls, 44, taking unsuspecting Allison Meadows, 16, hostage in a Pennsylvania Target store before bystanders intervened.

Shortly after the girl was grabbed, a brave man leapt over the counter on top of Walls’ back, but it only provoked the maniac.

At that point, Walls began repeatedly stabbing the girl, but luckily brave witnesses remained undeterred and eventually subdued him until police arrived. Several customers obtained knife wounds as they tried to protect Meadows.

“It was so sad,” Mike Turner, a man who helped take down Walls told WTAE-TV. “To see him stabbing her and the other guys that got stabbed. It was sad to see.”

On Thursday, an Alleghany County jury found Walls guilty on counts of attempted homicide, aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person, WTAE reported.

While the guilty verdict may offer some consolation, Walls was also found to be “mentally ill” and sentencing will be coming at a later date.

“It was the most gut-wrenching thing I’ve ever had to watch,” Allison’s father, Glen Meadows, said of the video.

As hard as the video is to watch, the selfless acts of heroism from complete strangers is even more inspiring.

Meadows eventually recovered from her back and arm wounds, but it likely would have been much worse if fellow customers didn’t act quickly.

The teen definitely had guardian angels nearby that day. Thankfully the surveillance video was in place to prove it.

    One thought- concealed carry

      Target doesn’t allow concealed carry in their stores.

    I guess since it was a black attacker and white victim, it did not make the news around here.
    Too bad somebody did not just shoot the guy.

      That would have led to accusations of White racism. Interviews with his mother about what a “good boy” he was. Al Sharpyon speeches about how he was a Gentle Giant who had recently turned his life around. Demonstrators paid by Soros and ACORN splinters who had no choice except to riot and express their anguish by stealing flat screen TVs and Nike Air Jordan Sneakers….

      You know. The USUAL crap. All endlessly justified by black militants on this forum like Stan and Jamal Warner.

    Constitutional Open Carry is the answer. We have the right to defend life and property.
