(Meredith) - A Georgia mother slashed her boyfriend with a sword after she walked in on him molesting her 5-year-old daughter, police said.
The woman, who was not identified, told deputies she grabbed the sword when she caught her boyfriend, 25-year-old John Lawarren Williams, in the act last Thursday, WMAZ reported.
She allegedly sliced Williams on one of his hands as he tried to escape her Twiggs County home. He managed to run away before deputies responded to the mother's call around midnight.
The mother and child were transported to Navicent Pediatric Hospital, but the girl's condition is unknown, according to WGXA.
Williams surrendered to police the next morning and was treated for the cut.
He was also charged with aggravated child molestation and two counts of cruelty to children.
