RAW: Surveillance video captures the moment leading up to stabbing in League City

Surveillance video captures the moment leading up to the stabbing of a Jack in the Box employee in League City who asked a customer to put on a face mask.

Investigators have a warrant out for the suspect, who’s still on the loose. Once he’s caught, he will face a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. 

League City Police are actively searching for 53-year-old James Henry Schulz, a known homeless man in the area, last seen at the Jack in the Box at the cross section of I-45 and League City Parkway. 

“He came into the restaurant and management asked him to put a mask on, but he didn’t want to put the mask on and an argument began,” said Lt. Michael Buffington with League City Police.

Investigators said a Jack in the Box manager asked Schulz to leave when he wouldn’t comply with the mask request and walked him outside. 

But Schulz can be seen on surveillance video turning right back around, pulling out a pocket knife and charged at the manager, stabbing him three times. 

At least two other employees were inside the restaurant at the time. 

“They did come to the aid and help fend off the suspect from the victim,” said Buffington.
