NewsChannel 11 is learning more about an overnight stabbing that sent three people to the hospital. As of Thursday evening, the two victims were in critical, but stable condition at University Medical Center's Intensive Care Unit. The suspect has since been turned over to police.
Police tell us that Tim Haney was arguing with his wife Amy Haney around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday in their northwest Lubbock home. The fight escalated and moved outside the home at 6101 20th Street. Tim then allegedly stabbed Amy between 23 and 28 times.
Police say Amy's brother, Curtis Nay, tried to help. Tim allegedly cut him and fled the scene in a gray SUV. At least three people called 911, saying Amy was stabbed in the stomach, and Curtis was cut across the throat.
"He came out of that house, and he said to call the police. He ran up and he scared the dog out of me, and he said call the police I just got stabbed. He didn't have his shirt on, and he was pouring blood. I looked like an artery because it gushing out," one caller said.
"She's hurting, she's hurting bad. She's bleeding bad," another caller said.
A third caller could not tell police what happened.
"We don't know, the guy drove off, my friend went to get the guys license plates. We don't know what happened," the caller said.
Police caught up with Tim Haney at the Wal-Mart at 82nd and Milwaukee. He apparently wrecked his SUV behind the store. EMS treated him for injuries to his arm, but police tell us the he was booked into the city jail afterwards.
Right now, Haney is charged with aggravated assault.
