A Michigan family is in a state of shock after their daughter was stabbed twice while working in a barn. The daughter, Samantha Minehart, was feeding horses in a barn when a strange man grabbed her from behind and held a knife to her throat. The man ordered her not to do anything or he would kill her. The man proceeded to stab her twice in the stomach. As he turned away from the daughter she fired twice, missing both times but scaring him away.

Police are still looking for the suspect while Samantha received 11 stitches and is expected to make a full recovery. The family tells local news reporters that this is the third time they’ve had run-ins with strangers on the property. They suspect the reasoning might be due to the late-husband’s occupation, a police officer who passed in 2008 due to health complications.
