Man attacks ex-wife and her boyfriend

Published 11:21am Thursday, March 22, 2012

A Selma man and his girlfriend were asleep early Wednesday morning, when the woman’s ex-husband entered the home carrying what police described as “a large knife.”

According to Selma Police officials, at around 4:50 a.m. Wednesday, the couple was asleep in their bed in their residence in the 3100 block of Lincoln Drive, when Aaron Fails reportedly forced his way into the residence by kicking in the back door.

“Once inside, Mr. Fails, produced a large knife and began to stab the victim several times,” Selma Chief of Police William T. Riley said. He described the person stabbed as the woman’s boyfriend. “Also during the incident, the suspect assaulted his ex-spouse.”

Riley said that after assaulting his ex-wife, Fails reportedly left the residence.

Police responded to Vaughan Regional Medical Center shortly after 5 a.m., where they found the victim had suffered at least four stab wounds. The victim, who police did not identify, was treated for his wound and released. The ex-wife, who was also not identified, did not require any medical attention.

The victims identified Fails as the attacker and police were able to apprehend the suspect later that morning “in the immediate area.”

Fails, 38, was charged and placed in the Dallas County Jail under $120,000 bond. He is charged with first-degree burglary and second-degree assault.

    who knows what combination of emotions made him pop.

    maybe it was the guy sleeping with his ex-girl.. maybe she with the help of her boyfriend cleared out his savings right before they broke out…

    hate to see it… so we are now reporting on domestic violence..? maybe we can pull up the story about the domestic violence with johnny leashore shooting into his girlfriends house? maybe they would post the article on trueselma… (falseselma).. I hate that brainwashing use of words…

      D-man: I’m not real sure the shooting incident you’re referring to showed up in the paper as it was “squashed” at the city level as a condition of his removal from CAA. I can look it up and will send you an IM on Facebook. pops

        pop, i would certainly appreciate that. With “leaders” like leashore in the community “influencing” black youth on and around selma, it is quite scary. What everyone needs to understand is that there are many that consider him a leader just if for no other reason tjan him being on the radio. What a joke… and a not so funny joke… If someone the youth is supposed to be looking up to carries on with such nonsense, then why shouldnt they? It is no wonder news people up north are always making fun of the people in the south… my question is how many men have been influenced by him that it is okay to carry on that way and how many women influenced to think it must be okay to be abused by men since he is on the air…

        who is supporting him on the air anyway besides perkins?
