A man who was recently released from prison allegedly attacked his ex-girlfriend and her current husband in Hutchins on Tuesday morning.

The violent incident happened about 3 a.m. at a home in the 500 block of Breneman Boulevard.

Police believe 46-year-old Gerald Perkins went to his ex-girlfriend’s home and stabbed her current husband. Then he sexually assaulted her and stabbed her as well.

The victims were taken to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. Police said they both had stab wounds on their arms and legs. The wife was also repeatedly hit in the face. Somehow, the couple was able to call 911 as soon as Perkins left the home.

Responding officers arrested Perkins as he was leaving the scene on foot.

Perkins has been charged with sexual assault and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He could also be charged with burglary of a habitation.

Police said the ex-girlfriend had reported to police that Perkins could be stalking her.

Hutchins is located south of Dallas.
