VIDEO: Military Vet Bashes Knife-Wielding Suspect In Head During Attack at South Carolina Walmart

1 min


A U.S. military veteran, Demario Davis, thwarted a knife-wielding attacker inside a Walmart store on January 4th by bashing him in the head with a metal stanchion. The incident took place at the Walmart store on Two Notch Road in Columbia, South Carolina. Witnesses reported seeing a man waving a knife around in the self-checkout area of the store, threatening shoppers and employees.

Davis, who was shopping with his son at the time, said that he saw the man “terrorizing other customers and employees” while waving the knife around. Cell phone footage showed the suspect waving the blade as a witness stood just feet away, trying to convince him to put down his weapon. Davis then raised the stanchion over his head and bashed the armed man in the head from behind, dropping him to the ground. Another man then took the knife away, and Davis held the suspect down until the police arrived and took him into custody. The suspect was transported to the hospital for an evaluation, but it is unclear whether any charges were filed.
