EL PASO, Texas – El Paso police arrested a man on a charge of attempted murder Saturday after he was caught fleeing the scene of a stabbing in his motorized wheelchair.
The 52-year-old is accused of stabbing his neighbor in an El Paso apartment complex after several days of feuding, police spokesman Darrel Petry said.
Officers arrived at the complex around Saturday morning and found Billy Cheeks inside his apartment bleeding from a stab wound to his chest.
Police said the attacker was James Grady, 52. Grady is accused of riding up to Cheeks' apartment in his motorized wheelchair, walking into the apartment through a partially opened door and stabbing Cheeks with a knife, police said.
Police arrested Grady on a street corner about half-mile (kilometer) away in his motorized wheelchair, Petry said.
A jail official said he did not know whether Grady had an attorney.
