SAN ANTONIO, Texas – A 24-year-old San Antonio woman allegedly stabbed an off-duty Floresville police officer under his chin and slashed the face of a Walmart employee on Friday for no apparent reason.

Angel Lace Rios is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault of a public servant with a deadly weapon. She remains in the Bexar County Jail.

Police said Rios slashed the Walmart employee, Rebecca Escobedo, 48, across the face, causing an 8-inch superficial cut, around 5:30 a.m. at the Walmart in the 1600 block of Vance Jackson.

Authorities said no altercation preceded the attack.

Witnesses rushed to notify the off-duty officer, identified as G. Ortiz, who was working as a security guard at the Walmart.

According to an arrest report, Rios somehow came up behind Ortiz and slashed the back of his head. Ortiz reached for his gun, but Rios lunged at the officer and tried to stab him, police said.

The two fell to the floor, where Rios allegedly stabbed the officer under the chin. Ortiz and witnesses were eventually able to disarm Rios and she was handcuffed.

Paramedics reportedly took Ortiz to University Hospital with non-life threatening wounds, and Escobedo went by herself to a medical clinic for treatment.

A South Side woman reportedly foiled an alleged burglary attempt at her homeTuesday morning by attacking one of the suspects with a knife.

Police said a man in his 30s and a woman went to a home in the 100 block of Arlington Court around 2:30 a.m. and allegedly broke in.

The woman reportedly went through a window, but the female homeowner had been alerted to the break-in attempt, so she grabbed a knife and cut the woman across the head. Authorities then arrived to the scene.

Paramedics reportedly evaluated the suspect, but police ultimately arrested her. It remains unclear if the other man involved is also facing charges.
