HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police say a stabbing suspect faces charges of stealing a patrol car and trying to run over an officer.

Police say 37-year-old William L. Rhodes was being held Friday on charges of aggravated assault against a public servant and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

No officers were hurt Thursday when responding to a fight outside a bar and a man stabbed. The victim was hospitalized Friday in stable condition.

Two officers drove to an apartment complex and got out of their patrol car. Rhodes allegedly stole the vehicle and tried to run down an officer, who opened fire but missed.

The vehicle hit a light pole and went into a ditch.

Jail records didn’t list bond or an attorney representing Rhodes, who was treated for hand lacerations.
