On March 5th, just after 2 p.m. on Highway 99 near Caldwell Avenue, a knife-wielding woman got on board the bus. Tulare County Sheriff's deputies say the woman began talking to herself before pulling out a knife and stabbing the mother of a 3-year-old girl.
The 3-year-old girl had marks on her neck but was not seriously hurt. Her mother was stabbed in the stomach and underwent surgery.
The mother was released from the hospital today.
A deputy with the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office personally took her back home to Northern California where she was reunited with her daughter.
