Before a man was shot by police in Northwest Austin on Sunday morning, authorities said he had stabbed his boyfriend about 10 times and left him bleeding for more than five hours.
Quinton Anthony Wiles, 59, was booked into the Travis County Jail on Monday on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to jail records.
An arrest affidavit filed against Wiles said police responded to a 911 call about a home in the 4000 block of Greenhill Place around 10:36 a.m.
The affidavit said the caller told authorities he heard a man saying “I have a gun and I’m going to use it,” but authorities believe that Wiles was the man who made the call.
When police got to the home, they said they found Wiles holding a knife. The document said he walked toward officers and refused several times to drop the weapon.
As he continued to walk toward responding officers, Officer Jason Canales, an eight-year veteran of the department shot him, police said.
Other officers went inside the house and found Wiles’ boyfriend suffering from several stab wounds to his upper torso.
According to the affidavit, the man said, “I’m stabbed… Quinton did it…”
The report said the man told police Wiles came into their bedroom around 5 a.m. and said he was sorry that all the money was gone, and that on Tuesday things were going to get bad.
Without warning, Wiles stabbed the man twice in the torso, the affidavit said.
The man tried to run away, but he only made it to the end of the hallway near the front door before Wiles caught him and stabbed him again with a bigger knife, he told police.
The man said he slipped on his own blood while struggling to get away, and Wiles straddled him and stabbed two or three more times, according to the affidavit.
Medics rushed the man to a hospital, where he underwent nearly two hours of surgery.
The affidavit said he likely would have died without medical attention.
