A Brownwood man with multiple assault-related arrests since 2002 remained Wednesday in the Brown County Jail on allegations that he kidnapped his girlfriend and her son  and stabbed his girlfriend’s father, police said.
    Jason Coffey, 36, was arrested Saturday night on two charges of aggravated kidnapping with a deadly weapon, one charge of aggravated assault against family with a weapon and on an unrelated Ector County warrant for assault family violence with previous convictions, police said.
    Coffey’s bonds total $240,000.
    According to an email from Brownwood police:
    Officers responded at 7 p.m. Saturday to an apartment in the 1500 block of Davis Lane for a welfare check. Concerned family members asked officers to check on a woman and her 16-year-old son, but officers could not initially make contact with anyone.
    As officers were leaving, they heard yelling and screaming coming from the area of the welfare check. Officers saw several people standing in a breezeway yelling, and officer Jayme Bowman recognized Coffey as someone with a warrant.
    Bowman arrested Coffey on the warrant, and officers saw another man at the end of the breezeway bleeeding from his head and stomach.
    Officers learned Coffey had been inside an apartment with his girlfriend and her 16-year-old son, where he held them against their will since 1 a.m. the previous day, police alleged after further investigation.
     As officers were leaving after initially being unable to contact anyone, the girlfriend’s father began trying to get someone to the door.
    Coffey exited the apartment and began assaulting the man, eventually stabbing him with a knife, police said.
    The stabbing victim was taken to Brownwood Regional Medical Center for treatment for multiple stab wounds to his head and body. Coffey was also taken to the hospital, where he had emergency surgery to repair damage to his right hand. The injury to his hand was consistent with him holding a knife during the assault, police said.
