Brownfield police: Man charged with attempted murder days after stabbing

BROWNFIELD - A man was arrested and charged with attempted murder Wednesday following a stabbing over the weekend in a North Brownfield home.


Officials on Thursday said 35-year-old Adrian Alvarado was arrested in the 1100 block of South Fifth Street days after the incident occurred.

At about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to a residence in the 800 block of North Second Street where an unidentified male was stabbed.

According to Brownfield police, the male homeowner reportedly exited his home to find Alvarado and a woman in a dispute.

As the homeowner attempted to intervene, police said Alvarado stabbed him before fleeing the scene.

Investigators believe the resident was taken to the hospital where he has since been treated and released.

Alvarado is being held at the Terry County Jail on a $750,000 bond for the first-degree felony charge.

The incident remained under investigation late Thursday.
