Woman charged after allegedly attacking man with pot of chili

RICHWOOD, Texas (KTRK) -- A young woman is facing charges after allegedly attacking a man with a pot of chili.

At 11 p.m. last Friday, Richwood police officers went to the Eastbank Apartments after a 911 call was made with someone screaming for help and a child crying in the background. When officers got there, they found a man who appeared to have blood on his shirt and a woman carrying a child.

Police say the female suspect, identified as Kayla Duenes, attempted to stab the man several times in the leg. When he tried to call for help, Duenes reportedly took a pot of chili from the stove and hit the man in the back of the head several times. Officers say as the victim tried to get away, Duenes grabbed a baseball bat and hit him in the arm.

The victim was treated for his injuries and released.

Duenes, 19, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a cutting instrument and interfering with an emergency call.
