One man is behind bars following an incident Sunday afternoon in Odessa.

Eric Muniz, 37, is accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police were called out to the Sweetbriar Apartments in reference to a disturbance.

When officers arrived, they spoke with a 35-year-old woman and her husband, identified as Muniz.

The wife reported to police that while she was sitting down with her 15-year-old and 12-year-old daughters, Muniz approached them fully nude while holding a knife in his right hand.

Police said an investigation revealed that Muniz then began to stab a door and made approximately 7 holes in a wooden door with the knife.

According to the report, Muniz told his wife that he was going to kill her.

We're told all three victims ran towards the front door and exited the apartment before calling police.

Muniz was later arrested and taken to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center.
