Grandparents are a luxury that many of us only briefly get to have and many don't realize them to be the blessing that they are. But it appears 12-year-old Sacha does as he leaped into action when he saw their lives were in danger.
Texas's Harris County Sheriff's Office posted about it.
"Last night, a Harris County Sheriff’s Office unit was alerted about two stabbing victims. Initial info: two adults (92 & 76 yrs) were driving with their great-grandson (20 yrs) when an argument broke out.
The 20-year-old grandson began stabbing both from the backseat. The grandson fled and great-grandparents were hospitalized.
Our team worked around the clock. This morning, the grandson, Lucian Johnston, was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault. He was arrested without incident. Great work by all, this very easily could’ve resulted in two murders.
Both are recovering well. The real hero in this ordeal is a 12-year-old that was also in the backseat at the time of the brutal attack. He managed to wrestle the knife away from Johnston & threw it out the window, which successfully stopped the attack."
"What I did was I grabbed him from behind. I pulled him backwards trying to get him away from grandma," said Sacha, who did not want to show his face during the interview.
"But I did grab the knife. I held that to his neck also. He bent back my finger, which is still sore right now," Sacha continued. "He head-butted me, which I have a loose tooth from that, but I do not really care."
Deputies said Lucian Johnston later fled the scene after the car came to a stop.
"So I'm still looking at the knife in my hand, throw it, shut and lock the door. I yell at her to shut and lock her door," Sacha recalled."

The fight was about the grandparents giving Lucian an ultimatum to get help as he was getting to be violent. It looks like they were in the right to want him to get psychological help. It's sad as they told him he could come back as long as he agreed to get the medical attention he needed. So it's not as if they were kicking him out, they were just trying to watch out for him. So he tried to kill them for caring about him...
