A man was stabbed several times in an early morning fight in a store parking lot in the 4800 block of Interstate 10 Wednesday, and a woman and her younger brother were jailed in relation to the assault.
Police said that 28-year-old Ciara Watson and 22-year-old Elijah Watson were both charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Ciara was also charged with aggravated robbery.
According to Baytown police spokesman Lt. Steve Dorris, the brother and sister, along with two other persons, were evicted from Motel 6 due to being involved in a disturbance.
The other two people, whose names police did not provide, had a flat tire and stopped in the Big Lots parking lot and called for assistance.
While they were waiting, the Watsons arrived and the disturbance resumed.
Elijah reportedly broke out the window of the victim’s truck with a baseball bat.
The Watsons left and returned again, Dorris said, at which time Ciara stabbed the victim several times in the back while Elijah hit him several times with the bat.
Ciara then reportedly confronted two witnesses, demanded their IDs and threatened them if they cooperated with police.
