    This report is wrong! I’d like to set the record straight. It is sickening to me the things the media make up to make it more dramatic. The man that was stabbed – 6 times – is my Nephew. The woman – my Niece!!! They were out for my Nephews birthday & were walking to their car past a group of guys. They went for my niece & tried to take her purse. My nephew & his friend – the one stabbed in the leg – jumped in to help her – this woman – HIS SISTER. One of the men took out a knife & started to stab him. Don’t believe everything you read in the media. They could care less about the tragedy not so much about truth.
