BELTON — A 23-year-old Harker Heights man who police said stabbed another man before trying to run him over with a car was indicted Wednesday by a Bell County grand jury.
Darius Kion Carter was indicted on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.
Harker Heights police responded to a residence in the 200 block of Jamie Drive March 11, and found a man who had been stabbed in the shoulder.
The victim said Carter stabbed him with a knife, according to an arrest affidavit.
The victim and a witness also told police that Carter then entered a vehicle, and drove toward the victim in an attempt to hit him. The victim was able to move out of the way, and Carter struck a vehicle parked in front of a nearby house, the affidavit stated.
The victim was treated at the scene by emergency medical service technicians, but refused transport to a hospital, according to officials from the Bell County district attorney’s office.
Police found Carter at a residence on Valley Road.
