Man turns self in for Temple stabbing

TEMPLE, TX - It is not often that police have someone come to them to turn themselves in for a crime they do not even have information about yet, but that is what occurred on Tuesday.

About 3:20 police were sent to the softball fields at 2205 Curtis B. Elliott regarding a fight without weapons.

Officers got there only to find that the people who had been fighting had left with no evidence that anything else had happened.

Temple Police spokesperson Shawana Neely says at 4:01 p.m., a man identified as 56-year-old David Davila of Temple came in to the police department lobby and said that he had stabbed a person he believed " was messing around with his wife." 

At that time police could not locate a victim.

Then at 4:40 p.m. police were advised that there was a stabbing victim at the Baylor Scott & White Hospital Emergency Room.

The victim had numerous wounds to his torso.

Wednesday afternoon the victim's condition was not known though police say it appears his wounds were not life threatening.

Davila was booked into the Bell County Jail.
