Two stabbed in separate incidents

By CHRISTIN COYNE

Unrelated stabbings Saturday and Monday left two people injured, according to information from the Parker County Sheriff’s Office.

Known suspects in both incidents reportedly fled the scene prior to the arrival of deputies.

The sheriff’s office received a call shortly before 6:30 p.m. Monday from a man on Ranch Oak Drive near Hudson Oaks reporting that a friend had been stabbed, according to information from Deputy Danie Huffman.

A 48-year-old man is believed to have been stabbed multiple times in the 100 block of Oak Hill Drive, Huffman reported.

The friend said the man who was stabbed told him that the suspect argued with the 48-year-old man the day prior and that the suspect said he would come to the man’s house and kill him, the sheriff’s office reported.

The witness told deputies that the 48-year-old man said he was working outside Monday evening when the suspect drove up and stabbed him three times with a knife.

The man reportedly attempted to drive to the hospital but became dizzy and ran to his friend’s house, Huffman said.

LifeCare transported the 48-year-old man to the hospital in Fort Worth for his injuries.

The suspect left the scene before deputies arrived and the aggravated assault with a deadly weapon case was forwarded to an investigator, Huffman said.

The sheriff’s office is seeking 76-year-old Roberto Ramirez in connection with the case, Huffman said.

Information on the 48-year-old man’s condition was not available Tuesday.

Saturday stabbing

A 29-year-old woman reported an assault around 1 a.m. Saturday, according to the sheriff’s office.

The incident reportedly occurred in the 100 block of Scarlett Road south of Weatherford.

A male family member reportedly cut the woman on the arms, neck and ribs, according to Huffman.

The woman was transported to a local hospital for her injuries.

The sheriff’s office is investigating the case as an aggravated assault with deadly weapon - family violence offense, according to Huffman.
