A Georgia woman said she walked in on her boyfriend molesting her 5-year-old daughter and slashed him with a sword while trying to get him out of the home.
According to the Twiggs County Sheriff’s Office, the unnamed mother called 911 and said she walked in on John Lawarren Williams, 25, molesting her little girl, so she grabbed a large sword and went after him. The woman managed to slice him one time, leaving a cut on his left hand.

“When deputies made contact with the complainant, it was discovered the complainant’s boyfriend had been caught molesting a five-year-old female child,” the Twiggs County Sheriff wrote in a statement on Facebook.
