MIDLAND, TX (KWES)
A Midland man is behind bars after being accused of threatening his girlfriend with a skinning knife.
The victim says she and Vincent Perez, 37, got into an argument.
She went to the bathroom to wash her face and calm down and she heard Perez follow her.
When she turned around, Perez had a skinning knife.
He said he would kill her then kill himself then kill their cat.
The victim was able to calm Perez enough to have his oldest daughter hide the knife.
