“Very emotional to see something like that [the crime scene] it just breaks my heart, “Mr. Smith.

Detective Tim Johnston said that the attacker only stopped stabbing Mrs. Tupou when he saw the bystanders running towards him.

“I believe if they didn’t do that, the victim would have had more serious injuries and maybe not survived,” Detective Johnston said.

“They did not hesitate to run to Crystal who was attacked with a knife and endangered their safety.”

Santos pleaded guilty of attempted murder and was sentenced to six years behind bars.

Mrs. Tupou said she always looked at the “good side” of her relationship, but knew it would someday get out of hand.

“There were signs, but I chose to see the good one from him,” she said.

“I didn’t really think anyone could hurt me so much.

“If someone goes through that, please, no matter how much it hurts, do the best for yourself, because nobody will give you another life.”
