Snyder woman stabbed by 'obsessed' husband
SNYDER, Texas —
A Snyder woman is in hiding and fearing for her life. Just over a week ago, Victoria Carrillo was stabbed in the face by her husband and he's still on the run. She fears her husband won't be caught.
On Feb. 1, a post was shared on Facebook in hopes that it would help find Fernando Carrillo, the man who stabbed his wife multiple times in the face, neck and hand.
In recalling the events of the morning on Jan. 27, Victoria said it started with an argument at their home in the 3600 block of Avenue U in Snyder. She said her husband was drinking when the argument escalated. Victoria was able to message a friend to call the police, but Fernando responded, "I’m going to kill you before they get here." Victoria said she tried to get to her neighbors when Fernando caught her by the hair and pulled out a knife.
She was stabbed in the face twice, once in the neck and once in the hand.
She said she asked Fernando prior to that day "if he loved me or if he was obsessed with me" and that morning "he said, 'I'm starting to believe it's an obsession'."
Fernando escaped before police could arrest him. Now, she does not know where he is but says, "he would tell me that if he ever went back, it wouldn't be for nothing, that at least he would be able to sleep at night knowing that nobody could ever be with me."
She asks him "to turn himself in, he can't run forever."
The Snyder Police Department says there are two warrants out for Fernando Carrillo, one for violating parole and one for aggravated assault.
"We do consider him dangerous and if anyone has any information on his whereabouts, please contact the Snyder Police Department," said Lt. Brian Haggard with the Snyder Police Department.
Lt. Haggard also said domestic violence cases like these are far too common and explains what to do.
"First of all, avoid any confrontation, immediately call 9-1-1 if you can. Safely get out of your house, go to a neighbor’s house and call the police."
Victoria said Fernando had just gotten out of prison where he spent two years for assaulting a police officer. He has also served time behind bars for possession of marijuana, driving while intoxicated and assault.
