IRVING, Texas (AP) - A 32-year-old man is facing criminal charges after Irving police say he stabbed a woman running on a treadmill at a gym multiple times with a screwdriver.

Police say the motive behind the Tuesday attack is unclear. Staff at 24 Hour Fitness say both the 49-year-old victim, whose identity wasn’t released, and the suspect, Phillip Roberts, are both gym members.

Roberts has been booked into Irving City Jail and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. It wasn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney yet.

Police say the victim and Roberts have no known relationship. They say the investigation is still in the early stages and is ongoing.
