Amarillo, TX - A Potter County man is behind bars on two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Twenty-two-year-old Christopher Lee Cox was arrested around 2 a.m. on July fourth in the 84 hundred block of U.S. Highway 287.

Deputies responding to a reported stabbing say they found two victims suffering apparent knife wounds at the scene.

The victims say they tried to stop what they thought was a sexual assault by hitting Cox in the head with a blunt object.

That's when he allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed one victim in the side and cut another in the neck.

Both were treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Cox is being held on $10,000 bond for each count and could face additional charges.
