A 24-year-old man is behind bars after he allegedly stabbed another man.

Michael Lee Hiebert was arraigned Monday by Bell County Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.

According to an arrest affidavit, a witness told police she saw an altercation between Hiebert and another man Nov. 17. The witness told police Hiebert pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim before leaving in a truck. That witness was later able to identify Hiebert in a photo lineup, the affidavit stated. Hiebert was arrested Sunday and is in Bell County Jail. Potvin set his bail at $100,000.

In an unrelated case, Marquis Jermurd Braxton, 22, was arraigned Monday on a charge of unlawfully carrying a weapon on licensed premises. Potvin set Braxton’s bail at $20,000.
