Chicago man stabbed after defending mom and her kids on bus

On Monday, Jose Santiago saw that a mother and her kids were being harassed on a CTA bus, so he decided to step in and ended up being stabbed by the harasser.

Santiago noticed the small group of people giving the woman a hard time about where she had put her stroller, so he stepped in. “He noticed nobody was doing anything, driver didn’t call the cops, so he asked they lady do you need help? I’ll help you move over there,” said his mother, Gladys Santiago to FOX 32.

He thought that was the end of the drama after he’d diverted the harassers’ attention, but when he got off the bus, so did the group, and he watched one woman hand a man a blade.

“He slipped on some gravel on the ground and fell, and as he was getting up, the guy stabbed him,” Santiago’s mother said. The blade punctured Santiago’s lung, and although he lost blood, he is expected to recover.

Thankfully, some bystanders snapped pictures of the stabbing suspect and gave them to police, who have since arrested 23-year old Gildalthi Rodriguez for misdemeanor battery.

“That’s just who he is, who my son is. That’s how I raised him. All my kids, to never pick on nobody, if somebody needs help, help them,” his mother said.
