The victim of a stabbing has been released from Hendrick Medical Center after being in critical condition earlier in the week. Now an Abilene man is charged with five felonies and one misdemeanor for that crime and allegedly fleeing the scene in the victim's car.
Police said 30-year-old Anthony Luna stabbed the man in the torso in the 600 block of Forrest Avenue Tuesday night. The victim was sent to Hendrick Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
Luna allegedly fled the scene in the victim's car. Police found him just 15 minutes later and said that, when they pulled him over, he first tried to take one officer's gun and another officer's stun gun as they tried to stun him.
Officers said they recovered a knife from the car.
Police arrested him and charged him with five felonies: aggravated assault, theft of a motor vehicle, assault on a peace officer, and two counts of attempting to take weapon from a peace officer. Luna is also charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest.
As of Thursday, Luna is in the Taylor County Jail on bond totaling $265,000.
