Wal-Mart employee arrested for assault

Police Chief James Waters of the Princeton Police Department reported that 20-year-old Wal-Mart employee Nicolas Martinez was arrested and charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. The charges come after a serious stabbing incident, which occurred around 4 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13.

Waters identified one of the victims as George Wesley Cook, an off-duty battalion chief firefighter with the McKinney Fire Department in Collin County. Cook, who was slashed across the throat, was apparently seen giving aid to another stabbing victim while blood was coming out of his own neck. The firefighter is in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery. Wal-Mart commented that, “the associate who did this was arrested and his employment at our store was immediately terminated.”
