Police Share Disturbing 'Stair Of Knives' Found At Home Of Domestic Abuse Victim

By Mark Pygas

Police in the United Kingdom have shared a horrifying look into the reality that domestic abuse victims face, and it's getting a big reaction on social media. After police entered a house and found a stairway with 21 kitchen knives embedded in the wood on every step, along with what appears to be a bullet, people are reminded of just how serious domestic violence is.

Inspector Jack Rowlands shared the photo on Twitter. It was taken by a colleague after the Metropolitan Police were called to a house in Hounslow, London. A 42-year-old man was arrested and charged with common assault.

As Rowlands stated on Twitter, he believes things could have gotten much worse if police had not acted when they did.
