When a man stabbed a teenage girl in a Pittsburgh Target, several people came to her aid and fought the man off. Now Target is suing one of them, reports WPXI.
Michael Turner protested outside of the East Liberty neighborhood store on Thursday. Wielding a sign that read “Target Sues Stabbing Victim HERO,” Turner marched around the outside of the store to let everyone know what had happened.
“I figure if I come out here and let the public see what’s going on, I think I’ll get some help from the public,” Turner said Thursday.
According to Turner, the man stabbed his friend in shoulder minutes before the Target scuffle and a few blocks away. Turner, the wounded man, and two others chased after him to stop the bizarre chain of events, reports WTAE.
“We were looking for him so I could call the police on him, because he stabbed my friend,” Turner said. “That’s why we were trying to catch this guy, because he stabbed someone for no reason.”
When Leon Walls stabbed teenager Allison Meadows, Turner ran up to the man while swinging a bat. Target claims that Turner pursued Walls through the store, causing unreasonable harm to others, notes WXPI.
Meadows’ family certainly does not agree with Target’s sentiment.
