Man fights off stabber

From page A3 | March 13, 2013 | 8 Comments

At 10 p.m. on Sunday night, El Dorado County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of a woman claiming her husband had been stabbed.

Deborah Lewis, 42, and her husband, Craig Templin, 51, had been living in a tent along railroad tracks in El Dorado, a press release stated. Sunday night, Lewis called EDSO to inform them that an unknown male had entered the tent while they were sleeping and stabbed Templin.

They were woken up as Templin was assaulted. The suspect had a knife and attempted to stab Templin. He was able to fight off the suspect and hold him until deputies arrived. Both the suspect and Templin received knife wounds. Neither Templin or Lewis had seen the suspect before. The suspect was identified as a 17-year-old male from Shingle Springs.

All three were taken to the hospital for treatment. The juvenile was later transported to Juvenile Hall and booked on a charge of attempted murder.

    There is something more to this story, a murderous 17 year old attacking people at night in a tent is rare, I hope the DA sees fit to try this debris as an adult and a 25 to life sentence sounds about right, an attack like this, if as described, shows us all we need to know about the prospects of this violent person ever contributing anything to the world.

    I'm with you Frank, this guy lost his cookies for some reason and these people were in the wrong place at the wrong time. I wonder if he had a bad reaction to some bad drugs. That nut who shot up the crowd and Gabrielle Giffords was reported to have been smoking some stuff they call salvia. The public needs to be protected from this loon for a very long time.

    I was in town tonight. These scumbags are everywhere. Where are they coming from? What is happening to our town? It's getting worse by the day. How can we fight this kind of thing? Anybody with any ideas?

    First thing to find out is if this 17 year old is local or transient, then the backstory can be investigated. Drugs being used by the violent attacker is probable. This was about as close to a double homicide as has been seen recently locally and is a bizarre case.

    I'm with you Jim! I'm fed up! These scumbags are out of control, and taking over our town! How can we fix this? Should we band together, organize, and start our own guardian angel thing? I'm frustrated, and willing to pitch in on cleaning up our town..Let's Roll!
