"It was hard for the both of us to sleep, both of us are restless but again"

A 70-year-old Asian mother has been attacked at her home in Winnipeg, Canada.

Linda Huynh posted on Instagram about her mother’s attack, which occurred on 17 October.

Nho Huynh was home alone when a woman in her 30s dressed in grey sweat pants a hoody began kicking at her front door.

When Huynh opened the door, the woman unleashed an unprovoked and brutal attack.

Running outside in fear, Huynh screamed for help. Fortunately, a man stopped and assisted Huynh but the attacker ran off.

“If it wasn’t for him saving my mom, she could’ve died,” Linda Huynh wrote on Instagram.

Images of her distressed mother covered in blood were shared on Linda’s Instagram post.

“If you guys are in the area of Mountain and McPhillips – please be careful.. It’s really hard to post this image – my mom and I never want this to happen to anything so we want to warn others for their safety,” Linda warned.

Linda went on to praise the man for helping her family during this stressful timne.

“Before I left to go to the hospital, the man who saved my mom helped us by checking to see if there was anyone in the house or if there was any broken windows. So far the only thing that was broken was the storm door (easy replacement),” Linda wrote.

Fortunately her mother suffered no severe injuries and was left with just “a couple of cuts and bruises on her head.”

Nonetheless, both she and her mother are left shaken by the incident.

“It was hard for the both of us to sleep, both of us are restless but again – happy she’s alive and we both started talking about how strong she was. She’s 70yo and never thought she could run like that,” she explained.

The family believe that her mother’s attacker could have been on drugs.

“We both agreed that woman who attacked her wasn’t herself,” Linda said. “We are assuming that she must have been on drugs because after the man stopped her from attacking, the woman started acting all viscous towards him and ran off.”

I never wish this to happen to anyone. It makes me very sad to see this happen to her. October 17,2020 around 4:30PM – A woman (5’6, We think she was in her 30s, grey sweat pants and hoodie. ) attacked my mom at her house. She was kicking the door and as my mom opened the door to check who she was. The woman attacked my mom. My mom was so scared, she ran outside of the house and started to run screaming for help. I’m so lucky that a man saw her and stopped what was happening. The woman who attacked my mom ran off. If it wasn’t for him saving my mom, she could’ve died. If you guys are in the area of Mountain and McPhillips – please be careful.. It’s really hard to post this image – my mom and I never want this to happen to anything so we want to warn others for their safety. 🙏 Prayers for my mom’s health

Update: The ambulance came and drove us both to HSC. Before I left to go to the hospital, the man who saved my mom helped us by checking to see if there was anyone in the house or if there was any broken windows. So far the only thing that was broken was the storm door (easy replacement) After getting checked and having a CT scan – The doctor told us that nothing was broken, scans are all clear – she has a couple of cuts and bruises on her head. The swelling will go down and his suggestion was for her to rest up. It was hard for the both of us to sleep, both of us are restless but again – happy she's alive and we both started talking about how strong she was. She's 70yo and never thought she could run like that. We both agreed that woman who attacked her wasn't herself. We are assuming that she must have been on drugs because after the man stopped her from attacking, the woman started acting all viscous towards him and ran off. Thank you so much everyone for sharing my last post. Again – it was very traumatizing and frightening, I don't know what I would do if I lost her.. She is my only family in Winnipeg. We only wanted to share this to warn others to keep their doors closed. Especially when you hear a loud banging noise at the door. (I thought my mom opened to see who she was but she said that the noise went away so she thought the woman ran away. My mom opened to see if there were any damages and that woman grabbed her hair and dragged her out) Again be careful everyone.. I'm so grateful for the man who saved her and all those who saw and called the cops. My mom is taking today to heal, talking to her friends and family about her feelings. I hope she will be emotionally okay, I'm also here for her. Thanks everyone ❤️ stay safe. This is a picture of her right after the hospital, all cleaned up and proud of what she made. She made Banh Gio which is a Vietnamese Pork Dumpling. 🍙🥟

1850: With all that has happened, I feel very emotional. I remember receiving that call "Hien! Someone attacked me, I'm bleeding! Help me!" I rush there immediately to see her face, her hands and her clothes covered in blood. As soon as she saw me – she screams and I run to her and hug her. The man who had saved her decided to stay with her to protect her. I'm so thankful ❤️ Dear: Scott Thank you, To us – You are our angel. If it wasn't for you, she could have been beaten to death. Your strength and bravery saved someone's life. My mom is so sweet, so innocent and caring. She is such a strong woman – who I am today is because of her. She is my best friend and I love her so much. Without her, it would just be me. I wouldn't have a family. She is my only family ❤️ Please hug your love one tonight, I ask you all to share this experience with others to show awareness, to show that you care and how important life really is. Stay safe #listentolinda
