Call a women's shelter in your area. They can help her make a safe plan to leave. Have you considered filing a police report yourself? Because you are a witness, I think they'd be able to file assault charges against him, then she could get a restraining order against him. It's not too late.In fact, I think that's assault with a deadly weapon and I think it's a felony. He might do real jail time for that. I have some experience with a physically abusive man, and I want to say that this man sounds EXTREMELY dangerous to me. I fear for your sister's life and her baby's. Locking her up, assaulting her with a weapon, these are farther than most wife beaters go. Please get her in touch with the shelter, they will be best at putting this in perspective for her. My thoughts are with you.
