Bond for Ben Carlos “B.C.” Acosta, 34, of Breckenridge, was set at more than $1 million Sunday, Nov. 6, according to the Breckenridge Police Department.

Justice of the Peace Michael Roach held the hearing and set bond for each of the six offenses Acosta has been charged with. The bonds for Acosta, who was arrested Friday night in the 500 block of West Walker Street in connection with the stabbings of four Breckenridge residents, were set at:

  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon — $200,000
  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon — $200,000
  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon — $200,000
  • Assault on public servant — $200,000
  • Aggravated assault on family member with a deadly weapon — $250,000
  • Resist arrest — $25,000
  • Total amount of bonds — $1,075,000

The assault on a family member is a first degree felony; the three counts of aggravated assault are second degree felonies; the assault on public servant is a third degree felony; and the resisting arrest is a Class A misdemeanor.

According to information released by the BPD, Acosta allegedly first stabbed his girlfriend during a dispute. Then a couple of hours later, stabbed three more people who stopped at the Allsup’s gas pumps, the police department said in a written statement.

As Breckenridge police officers were arresting Acosta, he reportedly resisted and kicked an officer in the face.

All four stabbing victims were taken to Stephens Memorial Hospital, and two people were then transferred by ambulance to an Abilene hospital.
