Austin American-Statesman - - METRO & STATE -

A per­son who po­lice say stabbed a man to death and se­verely in­jured a woman was ar­rested in Kyle on Sat­ur­day evening.

Au­thor­i­ties have not re­leased the iden­tity of the sus­pect.

Kyle po­lice re­sponded to an ag­gra­vated as­sault just be­fore mid­night Sat­ur­day at a home in the 1200 block of Kirby Lane. When they ar­rived, po­lice found one man dead and a woman with se­vere in­juries.

Wit­nesses re­ported that the sus­pect, who was liv­ing in the home, had stabbed both vic­tims and fled the area on foot. Of­fi­cers lo­cated and ar­rested the sus­pect a few blocks away, po­lice said.

The sus­pect has been charged with mur­der, ag­gra­vated as­sault with a deadly weapon, tam­per­ing with phys­i­cal ev­i­dence and evad­ing ar­rest, of­fi­cials said.

No other in­for­ma­tion was avail­able Sun­day af­ter­noon, po­lice said.

Austin po­lice say a man was taken into cus­tody Sat­ur­day af­ter­noon af­ter he pulled a knife on a man­ager at the Hoot­ers restau­rant on the 400 block of West River­side Drive.

The man, iden­ti­fied by po­lice as Kristo­pher Black, walked into the restau­rant around 4:15 p.m. Sat­ur­day and re­port­edly asked the host­ess an in­ap­pro­pri­ate ques­tion.

A man­ager asked Black to leave, but he re­fused, court doc­u­ments say.

The man­ager es­corted Black out of the es­tab­lish­ment and said he tried to block him from reen­ter­ing the restau­rant. Black then pulled out a knife to threaten the man­ager, the doc­u­ments say.

An as­sis­tant man­ager no­ti­fied an Austin po­lice of­fi­cer who was din­ing at the restau­rant. The of­fi­cer saw Black bran­dish­ing the knife, con­fronted him and held him at the restau­rant un­til other of­fi­cers ar­rived to take him into cus­tody, the doc­u­ments say.

The in­ci­dent was cap­tured in sur­veil­lance video, the doc­u­ments say.

Black was booked into the Travis County Jail on an ag­gra­vated as­sault with a deadly weapon charge. His bail was set at $10,000. — LUZ MORENO-LOZANO, AMER­I­CAN-STATESMAN
