June 4, 2024 - Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in the assault of a woman at 1715 Enclave Parkway about 4:50 a.m. on Monday (June 3).

The suspect, James Edward Tillman, 31, is charged with two counts of aggravated assault of a family member in the 337th State District Court. A booking photo of Tillman is not available for release at this time, as he remains hospitalized.

The victim, 32, was transported to an area hospital where she was treated and released.

HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Detective L. Garcia reported:

HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting/ stabbing incident at an apartment complex at the above address . A preliminary investigation determined the suspect, later identified as Tillman, was holding his 11-year-old daughter at knife point in the kitchen of the apartment, so the child's mother (victim) retrieved a firearm. Tillman charged at the woman, cut her with the knife and tried to take the firearm from her. During the struggle, the firearm discharged and Tillman was struck in the face area and lower body.

Houston Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and transported Tillman to the hospital with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. The woman was also transported to the hospital where she was treated and released. The juvenile female was not injured.

The Harris County District Attorney's Office was contacted and Tillman was subsequently charged for his role in the incident.
