California man steps in front of machete to save woman at Starbucks

A California man is being credited for heroism after he reportedly jumped in front of a woman who was allegedly being attacked by a machete-wielding man.

Blaine Hodge, 27, was at a Starbucks in Bakersfield on Sunday when a woman ran into the store, convinced someone was trying to kill her, KGET-TV reported.

"She was panicked. She was saying 'help me' and then at one point she said, 'This guy's going to kill me,'" Hodge's friend, Joe Harris, told the news station.

Harris said a man walked into the store while "holding something in his hand."

That's when Hodge stepped in.
