    TN - Children, ages 2 to 11, attack abusive boyfriend

    Man charged with attacking woman, 5 kids who came to her aid

    A 27-year-old North Memphis man has been charged with attacking his ex-girlfriend and five children who came to her defense.

    The children, ages 2 to 11, armed themselves with a screwdriver, metal crutch and brooms to defend the woman, who stabbed Cedric Threat in the December attack, according to a Memphis police report.
    On Dec. 12, Threat showed up at his ex-girlfriend’s apartment in the 2500 block of West Hillview and started kicking on the front and back doors, according to a police report.

    The woman let him in the apartment because she was afraid the disturbance would cause her to be evicted, the police report says. Threat, armed with a pocket knife, punched her in the head.

    I'm so glad mom & the kids are OK!
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    If one of the kids who came to the woman's defense was the man's child, sounds like he is pretty bad -- his own kid turned on him. Those kids are brave and loyal. Although I would prefer for them not to be put in such a situation, there is something to be said for them standing up against Threat. I'm so glad that no one was hurt (except the guy).

    I know, not exactly funny...but this guy's name is "Threat"??? That's a sign to stay away.
