An Odessa man remains behind bars in Midland after allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.

Last week, 31-year-old Cameron Howard was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police say Howard called an ex-girlfriend to pick him up from the Behavioral Healthcare Center in Midland.

When the woman showed up with her new boyfriend, officers say Howard got inside the car and tried to attack the couple with a box cutter.

Howard was taken to the Midland County Detention Center.

His bond has been set at $100,000.

If convicted, he faces up to 20 years behind bars.
