(ABC News) – A Louisiana mother whose family rescued her from an alleged stabbing attack at the hand of a man suspected of holding her prisoner knew that her family would come for her, her uncle said.
Bethany Arceneaux, 29, of Duson, La., is recovering at a relative’s home after her family came to her rescue Friday, tracking her down and killing the father of her child in an abandoned house where she was allegedly being held against her will.
“We can finally go to sleep at night,” Arceneaux’s uncle Marcus Arceneaux told ABC News Lafayette affiliate KATC-TV. “We felt we did what we had to do. It was a situation where her life was at hand. The guy was out to kill her and we weren’t going to wait for it to happen.”
Marcus Arceneaux was photographed carrying his bloody and distressed niece to safety after the family rescued her.
