So I already moved to place my mobile phone in my waist. After which he stated, ‘Give me the telephone. Don’t attempt to react, as a result of I’m armed.’ Then he put his hand over [a gun], however I spotted it was too tender.”

“He fell, then I caught him in a rear-naked choke. Then I sat him down in the identical place we had been earlier than and stated, ‘Now we’ll anticipate the police,’” she stated.
Authorities reportedly took the alleged attacker to have his wounds seen by medical employees earlier than taking him to a station, the place Viana filed a police report.
