NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Officers with the Nacogdoches Police Department arrested a 55-year-old man late Wednesday night in connection to allegations that he used a knife when he attacked his housemate at a home in the 1000 block of Holly Oak Street.
Jose Silvano Bonilla, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a second-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge. His bail amount has been set at $10,000.
