A Galveston man was arrested Tuesday after he was accused of holding a knife to a woman's back and threatened to stab her.
Galveston police officers were called about 2:20 a.m. to an apartment in the 2900 block of Ball Street, where a witness told officers that a friend had asked her to call police, and that she had seen her friend's boyfriend threaten her with a knife, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by The Daily News.
Police knocked on the door of the apartment for 10 minutes, but received no answer, according to the affidavit.
Officers confirmed that the man inside the apartment was sought on outstanding warrants. They forced their way in, and found a man and a woman in a back bedroom, according to the affidavit.
The woman told the officers the man had slapped her multiple times, and held a boning knife to her back, according to the affidavit. She said she feared she would be stabbed, according to the affidavit.
Police arrested Johnathan Limon, 30, of Galveston, and charged him with aggravated assault with a knife. His bond was set at $250,000 according to Galveston County jail records. He was still in custody at the Galveston County jail on Thursday afternoon.
