A Texas man is on the run after a “brutal attack” in which he allegedly stabbed his wife several times over her desire to attend church on Mother’s Day.
The Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office detailed the incident in a Monday statement on Facebook seeking assistance from the community in tracking down 43-year-old Rodolfo Madera Gonzalez.
Gonzalez is wanted for aggravated assault with a weapon–family violence, a first-degree felony in Texas.
The sheriff’s office said it responded to a call about a woman who had been stabbed several times with a screwdriver on Sunday evening. Gonzalez was later identified as the suspect in the horrific attack.
“The suspect in the investigation was identified as Rodolfo Madera Gonzalez who got into an argument with his wife on Mother’s Day because she wanted to go to church. The argument escalated, and Gonzalez is accused of stabbing his wife with a screwdriver numerous times in the front and back of her body,” the statement reads, in part.
Gonzalez’s wife, who has yet to be named in police or media publications, was rushed to a local hospital and is now in stable condition. Gonzalez, however, escaped in a 2007 Gray Dodge Ram half-ton pickup truck with Texas plates numbered BS9-9021.
“There was an argument … she wanted to go to church, an argument erupted,” Nacogdoches County Sheriff Jason Bridges told The Christian Post earlier this week. “I’m sure there were some other things involved but he ended up stabbing her. We can’t release any more information on the case because it is an ongoing criminal investigation and we are still attempting to get the suspect into custody.”
“We have a mother that was stabbed by her husband,” Bridges continued. “Regardless of what the argument was over or wasn’t over, it was a brutal attack and it shouldn’t happen no matter what they’re arguing about.”
