A father and his 22-year old daughter are trying to recover from the trauma of yet another home invasion in Wichita Falls.
Wichita Falls Police Department got a phone call at 5:30 a.m. Thursday, October 14th. A woman said there was a man with knives and covered in blood in her home and refused to leave. What that woman didn't know when she called police was that the man was also wanted in connection with a stabbing that happened across the street.
At the time of the break in she was the only one at home, but that didn't stop her from taking charge of the situation. Police say it all began with an altercation that started at the apartments near the street Sun Valley.
Investigators say Eli Ramos Junior and Randy Gonzales were fighting and the fight ended in a stabbing. Police say Ramos stabbed Gonzales in the chest, back, left ribcage and left hand.
All that was going on while Jessica Enriquez was asleep in the house across the street. According to the WFPD Ramos broke into the home where she lived with her father Daniel Enriquez.
Police say Ramos broke into the home and found his way to Daniel's room where he accidentally barricaded himself in. That's when Jessica woke up to a strange noise and realized her front door had been busted open.
Daniel says he suffers from what he calls spells so when his daughter heard the noise she panicked and thought something was wrong. She heard cries for help and went to her father's room to check it out.
"According to my daughter he was saying somebody was chasing him," said Daniel Enriquez.
Jessica immediately tried to open the door, but it was jammed shut. After a couple of seconds the door opened and the intruder revealed himself, Ramos was holding two knives and was covered in blood. The victim ran to get the gun her father keeps in the house and pointed it at Ramos.
According to her father she says once Ramos saw the gun he dropped the knives, but didn't leave.
Jessica ran into the bathroom and called police. When they arrived they say Ramos was lying on the couch. That's where they arrested him.
Eli Ramos Junior face two charges- one count of aggravated assault and one count of burglary of habitation.
The man who was stabbed actually drove himself to the hospital. Wichita Falls Police say his injuries are not life-threatening.
