A Kashmere Gardens man is facing capital murder charges after breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and stabbing her and her current boyfriend yesterday morning in north Houston, according to the Houston Police Department.
The incident occurred around 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday at 3031 Sumpter Street No. 17 in north Houston.
The suspect, Nathaniel Davis, 28, fatally stabbed 24-year-old Searrier Smith, of Houston, according to court documents.
Davis’ ex-girlfriend, Porsha Daniels, 25, was transported to an area hospital and treated for stab wounds. She is in stable condition.
“The two victims were inside an apartment at the above address when the suspect began banging on the door demanding he be let inside,” HPD Homicide Division Sergeants H. Chavez and M. Dillingham reported. “When neither Mr. Smith nor Ms. Daniels opened the door, the suspect broke the front window and entered the apartment. An apartment maintenance man was notified by a resident that a male had just broken into the apartment.”
According to HPD, the maintenance man saw the broken window and heard a woman screaming for help. He immediately called 9-1-1 and remained on the scene until emergency crews arrived.
The suspect fled the scene prior to the arrival of HPD patrol officers.
Smith was transported to Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Davis was later identified as a suspect in the case and was arrested today and charged with capital murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the 228th State District Court.
