Stabbing at Crystal Beach
CRYSTAL BEACH - The Galveston County Sheriff's Office is investigating a stabbing at Crystal Beach.
Sheriff's deputies responded to a stabbing at 873 Townsend in Crystal Beach at about 1:40 a.m. Friday. They found the victim, Glynn Franklin, with a knife cut to his face. The suspect, John Wair, 49, of Houston, was still on the scene and was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
The homeowner and her friend, Glynn Franklin, were at the residence when Wair, who reportedly is the ex-boyfriend of the homeowner, arrived at the residence and climbed past the security gate on the beach house and began beating on the doors and windows. When the homeowner opened the door to confront Wair he entered the residence. Wair and Franklin began to fight when Wair pulled a knife and cut Franklin.
Wair is in the Galveston County Jail in lieu of $40,000.00 bond.
Franklin was treated for his injuries at UTMB and released.
