Three alleged heroin users in search of drugs Thursday night in Lewisville ended up in an altercation where one was stabbed in the head at the Whip In convenience store at 998 N. Garden Ridge.
Lewisville Police Captain Michael Moore said the incident was called in just before 7 p.m. Dec 21. Moore said that police were able to ascertain that the one woman and two men were riding around Lewisville together trying to purchase illegal narcotics when the man in the front seat became frustrated with the man in the back seat.
Allegedly, after trying to force the man to leave the vehicle, the man in the front seat jumped into the back seat with a knife and began fighting the victim. Police say that when the victim tried to exit the vehicle, the suspect stabbed him in the back of the head.
Lewisville Special Operations Detectives who were in the area heard the radio broadcast and recognized the suspects, who they had dealt with a few days prior. Detectives went to the InTown Suites, 101 Valley View, where they observed the suspect vehicle with blood on the left rear passenger door. Two large folding knives were observed in the back seat.
Police arrested the male suspect who they believed stabbed the victim, and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The suspect was also wanted on a parole violation warrant. The woman gave police a statement and was released. Police released the vehicle to its owner, who was not involved.
The extent of the victim’s injuries were not known, but not believed to be life threatening. Moore said he was conscious and speaking with first responders on the scene at Whip In, and at Medical City Lewisville, where he was taken for treatment.
