2 women use golf club, knife to stop domestic attack, California police say

A man who attacked his estranged girlfriend in her California home on Saturday was killed by the woman’s mother and sister who used a golf club and a kitchen knife to defend her, authorities said.

Authorities pronounced the man dead at the South Pasadena home, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department said in a news release. The county coroner’s office identified him as Justin Goss, 40, of Glendale, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The women “were well within their right to act in defense of their sister and daughter” and are not expected to face charges, Lt. Barry Hall told the newspaper.

South Pasadena officers found the home’s front window shattered and heard the women screaming inside after responding to a report of domestic violence on Saturday morning, according to the release. Authorities said the man broke into the house and began to beat and choke the woman. 

The woman’s mother and adult sister fatally beat the man with a golf club and stabbed him with a kitchen knife during the struggle, according to authorities.

“They tried to pull him off, and it didn’t work; he was too strong,” Hall told the Times. “So they had to resort to using weapons.”

The woman targeted in the attack suffered facial injuries and has been released from the hospital, according to the release.

  1. I guess nobody has to worry about that bas tard ever again. Good to see women work together to rid this planet of another idiot who things beating on women is the correct thing to do. He would have killed the woman he was attacking. His tomb stone should only read, “At the bottom of this hole lies a stupid and ignorant man not even worthy of being remembered.”

  2. Thank you ladies for ridding the world of another cowardly piece of crap who beats up on women and no doubt children; Need we say more about bearing arms? Although in this case a kitchen knife and a golf club did the job; thanks for a job well done.

  3. Just another reason why the 2nd Amendment is a great idea. If any of them had a firearm and learned how to properly use and know when they could use a firearm, he would have been dead much quicker and the woman may not have had that many injuries.
