A 28-year-old Odessa man was charged with first-degree aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after, court documents state, he stabbed his girlfriend in the upper left thigh with a machete after an argument.
Brandall Steve Green, 613 Express Way, was being held Thursday at the Ector County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.
Odessa Police officers responded to a stab wound victim on Sept. 27 in the 600 block of Express Way and found 22-year-old Katisha Adams with a stab wound in her thigh, an arrest affidavit stated.
Adams told police at the scene no one stabbed her, but witnesses were telling her “not to lie,” and told officers a black male was inside Adams’ apartment and had left the scene, the affidavit stated.
Adams was taken to Medical Center Hospital where she gave police a statement that Green, identified as her boyfriend, stabbed her in the thigh with a machete during an argument, the affidavit stated.
At 2:24 p.m. Monday, Adams called the police department and advised she did not wish to press charges against Green because she did want to get him in trouble, the affidavit stated.
