A grandfather from Michigan was stabbed in a park at his grandchild's first birthday party after approaching a man and telling him to stop taking drugs before the children, reports said.
Police were summoned to Grant Park in Utica after receiving phone calls for stabbing, WXYZ reported. The grandfather was attending a first birthday party in the park when he approached a man on a bench and asked him to stop using drugs while children were playing in the park. The grandfather, who was not identified, was stabbed at least 15 times.
The police arrived at the scene and declared the man dead. The suspected attacker was subsequently arrested, FOX2 reported.
Witnesses told Macomb Daily that an "angry" man in the park had attacked his grandfather in front of his family.
"He was angry, he seemed like he was the strength of the Tasmanian Devil," said Amanda Pasho, who lives across the street where the deadly sting happened. "My heart goes to the poor man's family, I can not believe that happened before them."
TEXAS FATHER CHARGED WITH CAPTAIN MURDER IN THE PERENNIAL DEATH OF THE 16-MONTH SON  Pasho recalled seeing the attacker holding a machete-like weapon and plunging it into the grandfather's body.
"(The victim) fell to the ground, he had blood over him," Pasho said. He had raised his arms to keep the man from stabbing him. The man put his knee down in the guy's abdomen to hold him down and then put his arm over his face and began stabbing him with a knife, stabbing him without interruption with the knife.
Other residents told the newspaper that the attacker had a box of whippets, jars of nitrous oxide that could cause hallucinations on inhalation.
