Levelland Police Investigate Home Break-In and Stabbing

Levelland Police were called to the 100 Block of 11th Street for a break in of a residence. While officers were in route they were advised that a fight was in progress and someone had been stabbed.

When officers arrived at the residence they were met by the suspect who had broke in to the home and was stabbed. Officers immediately requested EMS on an emergency response as the suspect was at the curb with a stab wound to the left side of his chest with heavy bleeding. EMS arrived and transported the subject to Covenant Hospital Levelland.

Officers met with the occupants of the home, who stated they were asleep in the bedroom when they heard someone at the front door, trying to manipulate the door knob. The male occupant of the home said he was armed with a baseball bat and a kitchen knife, when the suspect entered the front door, the resident struck him with the bat, however that did not stop him, he continued to try and enter the residence further, that is when he was stabbed. He still continued to try and fight the resident until officers arrived. It was also noted that the suspect had driven to the residence in a pickup. He was also known to the occupants of the residence. A detective with the Criminal Investigation Division was called to the scene to continue the investigation. While officers worked to process the scene, an officer went to the hospital to meet with the suspect. He was not able to proved much information to officers due to him being intoxicated. Police were told that the suspect would be in the hospital for several hours.

During the investigation the mother of the female resident came to the scene to pick up a 3 year old which was in the home. The mother was very upset stating that neither of the male subjects were supposed to be in the home due to open Child Protective Service Cases. She also notified the child’s father and the child was released to the father.

Child Protective Services was also notified by police of the new incident, a case file was started with CPS. The investigation is ongoing with police and no arrests have been made as of yet.
