Corpus Christi Police SWAT took a man into custody after he assaulted his 23-year-old girlfriend and a 21-year-old male neighbor who was trying to help the female.
Officers had originally been called to the apartment, located at 5757 Wooldridge Road, after the female called police stating her boyfriend had hit her several times in the face. The neighbor was leaving for work when he saw the disturbance occurring outside of the couple’s apartment. He yelled at the male to leave the female alone.
The neighbor then told Officers that the man pulled out a knife and grabbed the female by the throat. The neighbor again yelled at the man to drop the knife, but instead, he came across the walkway to where the neighbor was standing and made threats to kill him.
Eventually, the boyfriend went back into his apartment and locked the door. The female and the neighbor were able to get to safety and call the police.
Once Officers arrived the man refused to allow them to enter the apartment. The girlfriend told Officers that her boyfriend still had the knife he used to assault her in his possession, and he also owned a firearm that was inside the residence.
Officers attempted to communicate with the man from outside of the apartment, but he would not respond.
SWAT and Hostages Negotiators responded to the scene just after 8 AM. They communicated with the man inside with a loud speaker. They were able to convince the man to come outside and he was taken into custody at 10:15 AM.
Officers arrested the man, Blair Adair (05/24/1990), for two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and assault family violence by choking. All charges are felony offenses.
The female victim had injuries to her face which included a possible broken nose. She was taken to Spohn Memorial Hospital by CCFD EMS.
The neighbor was not injured during the attack.
