Man accused of stabbing 4 family members at Porter home in custody after manhunt

Nathan Carlin is in custody after Montgomery County deputies said he stabbed four family members on Tuesday.

PORTER, Texas — A 36-year-old man is in custody and facing multiple charges after authorities said he stabbed four of his family members at a home in Montgomery County.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Nathan Carlin was still a wanted man, and authorities said he should be considered armed and dangerous. By early Wednesday, the sheriff's office announced Carlin was in custody.

Deputies said they first responded to the scene of the stabbings in the 23600 block of E. Heritage Oaks Drive around noon. When they arrived, they found four stabbing victims, a 61-year-old woman, a 38-year-old woman, a 23-year-old woman and a 9-year-old girl.

They suffered lacerations and puncture wounds, authorities said. They were taken to area hospitals and were last reported to be in stable, but serious, condition.

Investigators said Carlin got into an argument with some of the victims at the house before he attacked them. He then fled the scene on foot.
