HOUSTON -

Houston Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for the arrest of a fugitive who allegedly tried to stab a woman.

Investigators said Kamori Skinner, 41, got into a fight with his ex-girlfriend and punched her in the face in December of 2012. Investigators said Skinner then threw the woman to the ground and tried to stab her.

Weeks after a warrant was issued for Skinner's arrest, he was pulled over by a patrol officer for a traffic violation. While the officer was checking his identification, Skinner took off on foot.

Skinner is wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and evading arrest.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information that leads to Skinner's arrest. The phone number to call is 713-222-TIPS (8477).
