A 44-year-old man suffered multiple stab wounds and cuts after an argument with his wife turned physical, he reported to police.

Baytown police spokesman Lt. Steve Dorris said that when the argument became violent, the wife, identified as 37-year-old Lakeysha Walker, pulled a knife and stabbed the victim several times and cut him as he tried to defend himself during the fight about 1 a.m. Monday in the 2500 block of Ward Road.

The man refused medical treatment at the scene and said he would get to the hospital on his own.

Walker was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Teen shot

A 16-year-old male Baytown resident went to the hospital with multiple, but not life-threatening, gunshot wounds about 2 p.m. Saturday.

Police said the shooting victim was apparently involved in an altercation with another person who allegedly owed him money after having wrecked his car a few weeks before. Dorris said details, including the location of the shooting, were unclear and detectives are investigating.


A man being stopped for a traffic violation about 8:45 p.m. Sunday in the 1700 block of Decker Drive had a Taser used on him after he resisted arrest, Dorris said.

The man, identified as 27-year-old Frederick Mason, got out of his car and approached the police officer who stopped him. Dorris said Mason was shouting and waving his arms wildly, prompting the officer to call for backup.

When backup arrived and officers ordered Mason to submit to arrest, he continued resisting. When officers knocked him to the ground, Mason put his hands under his own body to resist being handcuffed, at which time an officer used his Taser.

Mason was handcuffed, but continued to resist as police put him in a police car. He was charged with resisting arrest and interference with public duties.


• Property valued  at more than $1,000 was reported stolen from a vehicle in the 1100 block of Parkway Drive Sunday.

• Jewelry was reported stolen from a vehicle in the 600 block of Pearl Street early Sunday morning.

Two cell phones and a handgun were reported stolen from a vehicle parked at a business in the 6400 block of Garth Road about 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Cash, keys taken

An employee arriving at Baytown Ford Sunday morning found the safe at the business had been broken into and all of the money stolen from it.

Police also discovered that the adjacent dealership, Ron Craft, had also been broken into and all of the money stolen from its safe. At that dealership the burglar or burglars also broke into a lock box that had keys to all of the cars and took those keys as well.

Dorris said the two burglaries appear to have been related.

Not patient

A man found passed out in the bed of a hospital patient he was visiting became belligerent when hospital staff woke him up about 11:40 a.m. Saturday.

Dorris said the man, identified as 21-year-old Jose Maldonado of Pasadena, shouted at hospital staff, who then called the police. When an officer arrived, his profanity-filled rant continued, Dorris said, and Maldonado threatened to come back with friends and retaliate.

When he left the hospital and police tried to arrest him for public intoxication and disorderly conduct, he challenged the officer to catch him and fled on foot.

Police pursued him through the hospital parking lot and to an adjacent business, where he fell to the ground and surrendered.

Maldonado was charged with resisting arrest.
