Allan Heinz, a survivor of a terrible stabbing on the Los Angeles Metro, says "I'm really lucky to be here." He was robbed and repeatedly stabbed while riding the LA Metro bus to work.
The entire incident was captured on security cameras. A man jumped on Heinz when he was seated on the Green Line and snatched his phone. As Heinz pursued him, the suspect stabbed him four times in the leg.
Heinz describes himself as "a very positive person. I have a lot of people call me for support, and for the first time in my life, I realized I needed the support."
A homeless lady came to Heinz rescue shorty after, "she put her hand pressure on my legs as she prayed for me," Heinz told FOX 11.
According to FOX 11, the LA Metro released the following statement, "We have a zero tolerance policy for violent crimes on the Metro System and actively work with our law enforcement partners to bring perpetrators to justice."
Police say the suspect is still at large and is asking for the public's help. The suspect was identified as a male between the ages of 14 and 20, ranging between 5-feet-5 inches and 5-feet-8 inches tall.
