A US Military veteran in South Carolina is being lauded as a hero after he stopped a vicious knife attack in Walmart.

Demario Davis was in the right place at the right time when a knife-wielding individual began a crazed assault at a Richland County Walmart.

“I was at the checkout when my son noticed the guy walk in with the knife open. He then proceeded to the service desk waving the knife at a few female employees. They took off running from the guy. I then asked a female employee where is security and she stated she was security,” Davis told Fox News Digital.

“As I’m walking towards the area where the gentleman waving the knife is terrorizing other customers and employees, he yelled out when the cops get here I’m going to start cutting you all up.”

With the guard clearly outmatched, Davis decided to become a force multiplier.

“As I’m walking towards the area where the gentleman waving the knife is terrorizing other customers and employees, he yelled out, ‘When the cops get here, I’m going to start cutting you all up.'”

According to Fox Digital, Davis then took drastic measures.

“Another customer tried to subdue the gentleman waving the knife, but the guy tried to cut him in the face,” he said. “That’s when my military training kicked in and I casually walked over to the object not only to take him down but also protect myself in case I failed, but with my great military training I was able to neutralize the threat until law enforcement arrived.”

The identity of the assailant is unknown. Additionally, it is not known if there were any injuries.
