This is not me. Damnit. I have guns, not knives. http://www.nbc-2.com/story/20479404/stabbing-victim-speaks-out-against-attacker FORT MYERS - A Fort Myers woman nearly stabbed to death spoke out against her accused attacker. Police say the day after Christmas, a Fort Myers man broke into a woman's home in the Paseo community and stabbed her. Tracey Marazzi was there for John Maatsch's first court appearance. Shaken and bandaged up, she mustered enough strength and courage to face her accused attacker - a stranger and next door neighbor. "It's hard to be here, but I could not let this guy back out on the street. I'm scared, my child is scared," Marazzi. Fearing for her life, Marazzi begged the judge to not give 32-year-old Maatsch the chance to bond out of jail. Fighting through tears, she described the morning after Christmas when she woke up at 4 a.m. to see a man staring down at her. "I don't know how long he stood there and looked at me while I slept before he stabbed me in the chest. He stabbed me three times, just missed my artery, just less than a millimeter, collapsed my lung and almost killed me," she described. Tracey then says Maatsch tried to attack her 11-year-old-son, but she fought against him and they both got out. While emergency crews rushed Tracey to the hospital, law enforcement searched for the suspect. Five days later, police say Maatsch turned himself in. He was arrested and charged with aggravated battery. "This guy broke into my house and stabbed me. He needs to be in jail for attempted murder, not aggravated battery," Marazzi said. The judge did grant Marazzi's wish and held Maatsch in jail without bond pending the outcome of a danger hearing. But through the bandages and tears, she is fighting back. "I almost died. My child had to witness this. I want him to be punished to the fullest extent of the law," Marazzi said.
