A man who had witnessed the assault also ran to the scene, arriving immediately after Evsich, and joined in overpowering the assailant and holding him to the ground. Police arrived shortly and arrested him. Ms. Andrews was hospitalized for treatment of severe leg injuries, some permanent, and multiple stab wounds. Evsich was treated for knee injury, which caused him to miss a month’s work.
