According to the police report made by Melissa Kingston later that evening, she had stopped by the liquor store on the way home from work.

Kingston reported that she was sitting in her car, a black 2009 Porsche 911 with the convertible top down, at night in the parking lot of the liquor store when the attack happened. According to the National Weather Service, the temperature at the time was a chilly 48 degrees.

Kingston claimed to police that she ended up knocking the armed attacker to the ground "kicking the suspect repeatedly in the face and stomach."
