I had never witnessed anything like this in my life
it's a horrifying experience never seen anything like
this not around here.
Charles Rislow lives not even a block from the crime
scene on Willow and Juniper street.
I heard a whole bunch of screaming going on, with
a woman screaming at the top of lungs, wife and i
ran out and i seen this car in middle of st here and
well I've in a very quiet safe neighborhood i thought
Rislow said he found a woman bleeding outside a car
cradling a small child.
I saw guy exiting the car, blood all over him too
and he collapsed and i ran up to him, didn't know
Rislow gave the man CPR until paramedics arrived.
At first i thought it was a car accident, was my first
when the rescue squad took shirt off and noticed six
stab wounds i thought my gosh this is for real.
you just don't see anything like this in the nice
peaceful community we live in la crescent.
