KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City, Missouri man is facing charges after he allegedly used a knife he found in Walmart to stab a woman inside the store on New Year's Eve.

According to court records, witnesses said Lenoble walked behind the counter at the automotive section and stabbed the victim in the neck. An off-duty officer at the store responded and found the victim with the knife still embedded in her neck.
