Man Attacks Wife in Stands at Son's Youth Game

A California man has been booked for attempted murder after he attacked his wife while she was watching her son’s game.

The attack occurred at around 7:05 on Thursday at the Chapman Sports Complex. The unidentified woman was sitting in the stands at the complex as a number of youth sporting events proceeded in the area.

The woman was alerted by her son that her husband, Russel Husges, was coming up behind her in the stands. Garden Grove police Sgt. Vince Vaicaro told The Orange County Register that Husges was armed with kitchen knives.

The woman ran away from Husges onto the field and screamed for help. Husges was then subdued and disarmed by one of the coaches and an off-duty police officer.

The woman was unharmed in the incident and Husges was booked and charged with attempted murder.
