Just one day after the attack, Rosemary described her and her late husband’s actions to WBZ-TV.
“We were sitting at the bar, and we heard a scream,” Rosemary said. “We turned around, and … we realized she was being stabbed.”
Rosemary described pushing Savoy away from DaRosa, then blocking him from her with a chair. She said George struggled with the man, then grabbed him around the waist and tried to hold his arms down. That’s when she says the suspect stabbed George in the head, killing him.
Police say DaRosa’s rampage began when he entered a Taunton home at random and stabbed a mother and daughter. Patricia Slavin died, and her daughter Kathleen Slavin was released from the hospital a few days later.MORE NEWS: 'Unthinkable Loss': 2 Cousins Drown While Skipping Rocks At Waldo Lake In Brockton
DaRosa then drove to the Silver City Galleria and crashed into a Macy’s store. He beat several people inside the store before moving to the Bertucci’s. After he stabbed Savoy and Heath, an off-duty officer, later identified as Plymouth County deputy sheriff James Creed, shot and killed him after he refused to drop his knife.
