A man stabbed an off-duty officer at a southwest Houston Walmart.

It happened at around 2am Tuesday at the store on South Post Oak and the South Loop. Police are still trying to figure out why the suspect went after the officer in the first place.

According to Houston police, the female officer, who normally works for the Houston Community College Police Department, was working an extra job inside the Walmart as security.

All of a sudden, a man approached her and, without saying a word, stabbed her multiple times with a hunting knife.

The officer lost a lot of blood and was transported to the hospital. Her condition is unknown.

Jeremiah Matthews, 23, was arrested and is charged with attempted capital murder. He's being held without bond.
