A 24-year-old Texas man is accused of attacking a woman sitting at a picnic table, stabbing her to death, police told news outlets.
Police in Conroe responded to the apartment complex at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, and found a woman, identified as 52-year-old Talat Jehan Khan, with multiple stab wounds, police told KTRK.
The woman was sitting at a picnic table with her dog and talking to someone on the phone when a man “came out of nowhere,” a witness told KHOU, adding “I heard that she was screaming.”
Matthew Amador, an apartment resident, saw and heard the commotion and came outside with a sword, he told KPRC.
“The perpetrator was checking her pulse which was really bad. I saw him checking her pulse, and then he stabbed her three times. Then as I yelled, ‘hey,’ he turned around and looked at me then ran,” Amador told the outlet.
Conroe police set up a perimeter and found and arrested Miles Joseph Fridrich, KHOU reported.
Fridrich is facing a charge of murder and his bail is set at $500,000, jail records show.
Officials did not say what may have motivated the killing.
Conroe is roughly 40 miles north of Houston.
