(Scroll down for video) A mother of five children is in the hospital after she was stabbed by her former boyfriend, according to police in Oklahoma.
The woman’s 11-year-old daughter reportedly saved her life after shooting the former boyfriend during the knife attack.
The suspect, Lenoardo Henry of Oklahoma City,
allegedly broke into the trailer home of his former girlfriend and began stabbing the woman, police said. The woman suffered injuries to her upper body.
The mother had recently taken out a restraining order against Henry after she reported that he molested her children.
According to the protection order, the victim said that Henry had molested several of her children in middle of the night for several years.
The 11-year-old girl managed to stop the attack against her mother after she grabbed a gun and shot Henry several times.
Henry staggered out of the house and was subsequently arrested. He was hospitalized. He is expected to survive and will face charges.
Authorities said that from the initial investigation it appears as though the girl acted out of self defense, and therefore she will not face any charges.
