30-year old Marcella Martinez told police a man with a knife confronted her and her 2-year old daughter as they walked toward their apartment on 200 block of E. County Line Road. They had just put some trash in the dumpster.

“They came in and he pushed the door, and hit her with the door” said her husband Marco. “He hit them with the door in the face and then he was carrying a knife.”
