Incident at 13725 Cambury Drive
April 3, 2005 -- Houston police
are investigating the fatal stabbing of a man at 13725 Cambury
Drive about 11:25 p.m., on Saturday, April 2, 2005.
The victim is identified as Nicholas Dawson,
22, of 13725 Cambury Drive, Apt. #211. The suspect is identified
as Christopher Antwon Cole.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeant C.E. Elliot and
Officer J.C. Bonaby reported:
On Saturday night the suspect, Cole, found his
girlfriend with another man, Dawson, inside his apartment. The
suspect and the victim had an argument and Cole told his girlfriend
and Dawson to leave. Cole also left the apartment to go to the
store and when he returned was confronted by Dawson and the female.
Dawson approached Cole and struck him in the face causing him
to fall to the ground. Dawson stood over Cole and continued to
strike him with closed fists. The female attempted to break up
the fight unsuccessfully. Cole attempted to reason with Dawson
several times during the physical attack. Cole felt that Dawson
was trying to kill him so he pulled out a pocketknife and stabbed
him. Dawson kept attacking Cole and Cole continued to stab Dawson.
Dawson finally stopped the attack and backed away. Cole ran to
his apartment to find out that Dawson had shattered his apartment
window and kicked in his front door. Cole went to a neighbor's
apartment, called 911 and waited for the police to arrive. Dawson
was pronounced dead at the scene from multiple stab wounds.
Cole and the female witness were taken to Homicide
Division for written statements and after these were completed,
the Harris County District Attorney's office was contacted.
Due to the facts and evidence at the scene, this
case will be referred to the Grand Jury without charges. The suspect
in this case was arrested and released without charges. The next
of kin has been notified.
