A teenager is facing charges after deputies say he threatened a woman inside a Fleming Island Walmart with a knife.
“I don’t know how I was able to stay calm ... and not freak out,” Alis Muntain, the victim, said.
Muntain said she had her hands full at Walmart with cat food and cat litter. That's when a 14-year-old approached her and asked her how old she was.

“And then he said, I want you to know that I have a knife in my pocket, and I want you to have sex with me,'" Muntain said. "And then he kind of pulled it out of his pocket and showed me that there was a pocketknife inside of there."
Muntain said she couldn’t believe what he just said.
“I stared at him for a second and was like is this really happening, and then I was just like, 'Are you serious?'" Muntain said.
She said she thankfully noticed a man walking at the end of the aisle, and called for help and told him what was going on.
“Just so you know, this guy has a knife in his hand and he’s threatening me to use it on me if I don’t have sex with him,” Muntain said.
Muntain said the man told her to go get help. As she was running, she said she noticed the teen running out of the store.
Minutes later, deputies arrested him in a parking lot nearby.
“I’m just going to learn from this experience and make sure I’m not defenseless as I was in that situation,” Muntain said.
