Ralls Woman Fights For Life After Weekend Stabbing

A suspect is in custody after an overnight attack in Crosby County that sent a woman to a Lubbock hospital.

It happened about 10:15 Sunday night in Ralls at a home in the 600 block of Avenue L. Crosby County Sheriff's Deputies found 35-year-old Victoria Barron lying in the back yard with a head wound. The victim had been stabbed below her left eye. Ralls EMS took Barron to Lorenzo, where Aerocare was waiting to fly her to UMC, here in Lubbock.

Witnesses identified Danny Guerrero of Lubbock, as a possible suspect. He was found one mile West of Ralls with blood-stained clothing. No bond has been posted. Barron's condition is not being made public, at this time.

"Supposedly these people didn't know each other he just came to Ralls looking for a man that used to live in this house and he didn't live there anymore and they tried to tell him he didn't live there anymore but the guy was pretty well wiped out last night," explains Crosby County Sheriff Red Riley.

After minutes of arguing with the suspect, Victoria Barron went inside. But the suspect was persistent. This time, knocking violently on the back door. So Victoria came outside one more time, that's when she was stabbed so violently the blade remained lodged below her left eye, leaving her laying in a puddle of her very own blood.

"In a few minutes she didn't return so they decided to check on her and they found her lying in the backyard in a pool of blood back there," says Sheriff Riley.

In fact, you can see the x-ray where the 8 inch blade is stuck between her spine and the base of her brain, police say leaving Victoria fighting for her life. Police are still searching for evidence, including the handle of the knife used on the victim. Among those in the house at the time of the incident, Barron's boyfriend and her 13-year-old daughter.

Authorities say Victoria Barron had recently moved to Ralls from Levelland. That's why police are asking what brought about such a violent attack from a stranger.
