On Thursday, December 3, 2015, at approximately 3:45 p.m., officers with the Huntsville Police Department (HPD) responded to a stabbing call in the 500 block of Bowers Boulevard. Upon arrival, the officers found a female victim with stab wounds to her neck and shoulder area. Officers located the suspect near the scene and took him into custody. The victim was ultimately flown to Hermann Memorial Hospital via Life Flight. The extent of the victim’s injuries is not known at the time of this release.
The suspect, Shabaz Andrews, 22, is believed to be from the Spring, Texas, area. Andrews is charged with aggravated assault, a felony of the first degree due to the relationship between Andrews and the victim. A first degree felony carries a punishment of five to 99 years imprisonment in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, and the possibility of a fine not to exceed $10,000.
HPD Chief Kevin Lunsford said, “I am very proud of our officers’ quick response and action in this investigation. Their work has enabled us to close this quickly and get the suspect in custody.”
