The Nacogdoches County’s Sheriff’s Office is seeking a man accused of stabbing his wife with a screwdriver on Mother’s Day because she wanted to go to church, Sheriff Jason Bridges said Monday afternoon.
Rodolfo Madera Gonzalez, 43, is wanted for aggravated family violence assault with a weapon, a first-degree felony.
Gonzalez got into an argument with his wife on Mother’s Day because she wanted to go to church and then stabbed her multiple times with a screwdriver, Bridges said in a press release.
“The assault occurred in the 300 block of CR 6108, where the suspect fled the scene after the stabbing. The victim was transported to a local hospital, where she is in stable condition,” Bridges said.
Gonzalez is believed to be driving a 2007 Gray Dodge Ram half ton pickup bearing Texas license plate number BS9-9021.
“The suspect is believed to be on the run, and has possibly left the area. The suspect is also wanted for a violation of a protective order, a third-degree felony,” Bridges said.
