Radium Springs-- A Dougherty County Police officer is being credited with saving a Radium Springs woman's life, after her husband attacked her yesterday.
Sgt. Julius Phillips' quick response is credited with saving Karel Giese's life after her husband Larry attacked her with a box cutter and scissors in a domestic dispute.
Phillips was the first officer to arrive at her Redbud Road home minutes after her call for help.
He heard screaming inside when he got to the door. "Soon as I kicked the door in, I see the two of them. Him leaning over with a knife, while she was laying on the ground, struggling over the knife. What I thought was a knife at the time, but it turned out to be a pair of scissors. I drew my weapon on Mr. Giese and told him to stand up and walk away from her. He stood up."
Lt. Jason Hager said "Anytime you enter a residence without backup. Someone has a weapon, and already demonstrated that he will use it on someone that he cares about, there is a danger."
Does it make you proud? Sgt. Phillips said, "It does, it does, makes me proud to be a Police Officer."
Larry Giese is being held in the Dougherty County Jail, charged with aggravated assault. Karol is recovering from numerous stab wounds at a local hospital.
