Killeen police are searching for a suspect in a November stabbing.

Charles Ray Garza, 21, is suspected of stabbing his 20-year-old roommate on Nov. 21.

According to Killeen Police Department spokeswoman Carroll Smith, Garza is described as Hispanic, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighing about 210 pounds with black hair, brown eyes and a medium complexion.

Killeen detectives had the Bell County District Attorney's Office review the case. The DA's office issued a complaint charging Garza with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke issued a warrant for Garza's arrest.

Garza is believed to have stabbed his roommate at 11 p.m. after they had a fight at their home in the 3900 block of Thunder Creek Drive. Garza fled on foot. His whereabouts have been unknown to authorities since.

Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is a first-degree felony carrying the possible penalty of five to 99 years in prison and an optional $10,000 fine.

Police are asking anyone with information about the whereabouts of Garza to call Crime Stoppers at 526-TIPS (8477), go online at www.killeencrimestoppers.com or text the word KILLEEN along with the tip to CRIMES (274637). All information is confidential. A tip leading to Garza's arrest is eligible for up to $1,000 in cash.
