LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – A Lufkin cook was forced to defend herself Friday when a man threw canned goods and fruit in her direction.

According to the Lufkin Police Department, the incident happened at the Lufkin Salvation Army Soup Kitchen.

The report indicates a male suspect jumped over the counter into the kitchen, and began throwing canned goods and fresh fruit at the cook. The suspect then grabbed a large kitchen knife and began to swing it at her.

The report describes how the cook defended herself by kneeing the suspect in the groin, which caused him to drop the knife and flee the building.

Police say no arrests have been made at this time.
