ODESSA - A gruesome crime in Odessa. A man's accused of stabbing his girlfriend in thigh with a machete and the crazy thing is she didn't want to rat him out.
28-year-old Brandall Green is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Last week, police say they responded to a call about a stab victim. When they arrived, the girlfriend said no one cut her even though she had a visible wound on her thigh.
Officers say her friends told her not to lie but she insisted no one had stabbed her.
So she was taken to the hospital and finally she wrote a statement saying she and green were arguing when he grabbed a machete and stabbed her left thigh.
She also told police she didn't want to press charges because she didn't want him to get in trouble.
