Waco police arrested a 19-year-old Monday after he hit a man in the head with a baseball bat and stabbed another man, an arrest affidavit states.
The man who was stabbed later died at a local hospital, Waco police Officer Garen Bynum said Tuesday evening. An autopsy was ordered to determine the cause of death.
Police responded about 6:15 p.m. to a call at a house in the 900 block of North 11th Street. Jason Ivy, 19, of Waco, was at the house attempting to "make amends" with a woman he had previously been in a relationship with, according to the affidavit.
After a family member of the woman intervened and went into the room where Ivy and the woman were, Ivy left the house and returned with a baseball bat, the affidavit states. He hit the family member in the head and then in the elbow, according to the affidavit.
Ivy then went outside and sat on the street with a knife in his hand, pressing it against himself but not cutting himself, the affidavit states. Ivy told officers another family member of the woman then approached him "like he wanted to fight," and they grabbed each other, leading Ivy to stab the man more than once, police stated.
Police arrested Ivy on a first-degree felony charge of aggravated assault, family violence, and two second-degree felony charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He remained in McLennan County Jail on Tuesday with bond listed at $100,000.
