“This Guy’s Going to Kill Me”: Ex-Boyfriend Chases Woman into Starbucks With Machete—Then a Stranger Steps in to Save the Day

Twenty-seven-year-old Blaine Hodge is being hailed a hero after saving a woman from a machete-wielding man who was allegedly her ex-boyfriend.

The act of domestic violence taken to the extreme left the woman running into a Starbucks in Bakersfield, California screaming, “Help me! This guy’s going to kill me,” according to witness Joe Harris, a friend of Hodge.

Harris reported that a man then walked into the coffee shop “holding something in his hand,” that turned out to be a sharp machete.

At that moment, Hodge fearlessly stepped in, placing himself in between the woman and the knife.

“Everyone else was running away and he was the first person to run straight to the action,” Harris told KGET-TV. “He was like: ‘I’m going to stop this guy, regardless if I get stabbed or not. I can’t let this woman die.'”

Hodge was stabbed many times during the violent encounter and may lose function of his right hand. He needed almost 200 stitches to repair the wounds and may take six weeks to recover.

The woman was also stabbed during the attack, but Hodge’s act of selfless heroism saved her life.
