A 43-year-old Anaheim man was arrested in Garden Grove for allegedly attempting to kill his estranged wife, who was watching their son play sports, Garden Grove police reported today.
The arrest came Thursday around 7:05 p.m. at the Chapman Sports Complex located at 11701 Knott St., Garden Grove police Sgt. Vince Vaicaro said.
The attack occurred as several youth sporting events were underway on the field, Vaicaro said.
The unidentified woman was alerted by her son that her husband, identified as Russel Husges, was coming up behind her in the stands allegedly armed with kitchen knives, according to Vaicaro.
The intended victim ran away from Husges onto the field screaming for help, Vaicaro said. Husges was then subdued and disarmed by one of the coaches and an off-duty police officer.
Husges was then placed in custody and booked on a charge of attempted murder, Vaicaro said.
