Oh, they caught me!

Police were called to an address on a report of an injured person about 6″30 am on Saturday. When they arrived they found the woman had been taken to the hospital, and the suspect  Kevin Butler Jr., 29, had left on foot.

The female victim had been stabbed in the stomach several times and was reported to be in critical condition.

While police were there interviewing witnesses, the suspect was sighted. Police gave chase and the suspect began stabbing himself in the stomach. A deputy then shot him with a pepper ball. He was taken to the hospital for self inflicted stab wounds where he was treated and released.

Kevin Butler Jr. has been booked on suspicion of attempted murder.


Some will say that he attempted to kill himself by stabbing himself. But I would like to point out that he didn’t start stabbing himself until after he came to the attention of police.
