Self-defense isn’t just delivered from the muzzle end of a gun. It comes in many forms.

So, what do you get when you’re a 27-year-old male and you attempt to physically beat down your 84-year-old aunt? If your aunt is Mary Jones of Kershaw County, South Carolina, you get an extra hole put in your body courtesy of a hard thrusted knife blade.

After a relative called 911, deputies arrived at the scene last week to find Kirim Gaskins in need of medical attention. He was transported to the hospital by EMS while deputies began searching for his aunt, identified as Jones, who had reportedly fled into the woods.

“We get there and start giving medical treatment and he tells us his aunt stabbed him and ran out the back door into the woods,” Kershaw County Sheriff Lee Boan told ABC 4 News. “Now we are looking for her, but what he failed to tell is that there was more to the story than just her stabbing him for no reason.”

Deputies soon located the woman nearby with cuts and bruises on her neck. A neighbor, Rowena Jones, observed her condition and described her as “barefoot, bloody, beaten up and stabbed in the arm.”

After interviewing both parties and conducting a second interview with Gaskins, authorities determined that a fight had occurred between the two.

“He is 27 and she is 84. If he put his hands on her and she was defending herself, not only is he going to get the stabbing, he is also going to get some charges,” said Sheriff Boan. But as of time of the News 4 report, no charges had been filed for either party.
