CHICAGO — Susana Reteguin heard a noise shortly after midnight and thought her husband was getting home from work.
But then she saw a stranger approaching her bed and she remembers calling out, “Who are you?”
The man said nothing as he jumped on her and hit her and cut her with a knife.
“I felt him hit me and saw blood everywhere,” Reteguin said.
That’s when her 11-year-old son Luis came to the rescue.
Luis ran into the bedroom and jumped on the man’s back. “Let go of my mom! Let go of my mom!” he screamed as the man turned and began cutting him.
Luis said he ran to the kitchen for a knife to defend himself and his mother.
