HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) -

Officers with the Huntington Police Department arrested a 41-year-old man on an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge after he allegedly pushed a 17-year-old girl and then punched the a family friend before he pulled a knife and tried to stab him.

Bryan James is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a second-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge. His bail has been set at $15,000.

Lt. Arthur Alvarez of the Huntington Police Department said that the complainant had recently gotten out of jail and the 17-year-old's mother and James, her current husband, were letting him stay at the residence in the 100 block of Mulberry Street until he could get back on his feet.

The complainant, who was once married to the 17-year-old's mother, was outside the residence when he heard a loud disturbance, according to Alvarez. He went inside and learned that James had allegedly shoved the 17-year-old girl and confronted him about it.

Alvarez said a fight ensued and that James punched the victim in the face several, breaking one of his teeth. Then James allegedly pulled out a small, serrated knife and tried to stab the complainant.

The complainant threw up his hands in an attempt to deflect the attack, and in the process, got a cut on his pinky finger that required stitches, Alvarez said.

James was arrested at the scene, and transported to the Angelina County Jail.
