Witness describes aftermath of stabbing at Subway restaurant

Wesley Armstrong and his aunt Beth Kenny were running errands this week when they came upon a gruesome scene in Des Moines. 16-year-old Brian Schnathorst was arrested and charged with Attempted Murder and Willful Injury in a Wednesday stabbing at a Subway restaurant. Schnathorst is being held on $500,000 bond. Police say Connor Kernes, the 18-year-old stabbed, is in the hospital in critical condition. Police say the two know each other, but a motive has not been confirmed. Armstrong told Local 5 he and his aunt had just parked near the Subway when an employee of the store ran outside yelling for help and saying someone had been stabbed. The two then provided aid to Kernes with Kenny tending his wound, he added. "It was a bit disturbing seeing somebody … with such an injury," Armstrong said. "This was on a whole other level of gruesome. I felt terrible for him." His aunt was using only tissues at times to apply pressure to the wound, according to Armstrong.
