The boy begged an officer to save his life

STOCKTON, Calif. — A 10-year-old Stockton boy begged an officer to save his life after his stepfather allegedly stabbed him.
Stockton police officers showed up to a gated community around 10 p.m. Saturday and found a gruesome scene inside the home off Autumn Chase Way. There was blood everywhere and a young boy pleading to officers to help him.
The scene was too dangerous for medics to go inside, because the stepfather had allegedly barricaded himself in a bedroom with a knife. So, police say, Officer Anthony Perry took it upon himself to carry the boy out to them.
