Good Samaritans save victim from knife attack in Covington

Chief Tim Lentz announces that Sunday morning, at approximately 2 a.m., the Covington Police Department was notified of an attack in the 400 block of E Gibson Street. Officers were on N Columbia Street at bar closing time when they were approached by a subject stating that a block away, a woman had been cut with a knife and witnesses to the incident were holding her attacker on the ground.

Officers ran to the scene, where they found Christopher Schilling being held down by a Good Samaritan that witnessed the incident. Officers placed Mr. Schilling into custody and interviewed witnesses to the incident.

Through their investigation, officers were able to determine that the victim left a local establishment and was walking to a friend’s car in the 400 block of E Gibson St. She was approached from behind by Schilling, whom she had never met prior to this incident. Schilling grabbed the victim by her hair, at which time her female friend exited the vehicle and attempted to help her by fighting off Schilling.

Three Good Samaritans witnessed the attack and came to help. As they pulled the female friend away from Schilling, she felt a pain on the side of her neck consistent with a minor cut, and Schilling was observed to be holding a knife. The good Samaritans forced Schilling to the ground, kicked the knife out of his hand, and held him until police arrived seconds later.

Schilling was not cooperative with authorities so a motive for the crime has yet to be determined, though he does deny remembering the incident. Schilling was arrested and transported to the St. Tammany Parish Jail. While at the jail, Schilling became unresponsive and was subsequently transported to St. Tammany Parish Hospital. After being released from the hospital, he was booked with the below charges. A booking photo will be attached to this release.

Christopher G. Schilling, white male, 31 years old, of the 222050 block of Richard Magee Road in Franklinton, was charged with the following:

Aggravated Battery (1 count)
Aggravated Assault (5 counts)
Simple Battery (3 counts)
Disturbing the Peace/Drunkenness (1 count)
Disturbing the Peace/Engaging in Fistic Encounter (1 count)
