Man breaks into Port Richey home, stabs man, deputies say

Published:

A man forced his way into a Port Richey home early today and stabbed the brother of his ex-girlfriend, Pasco County sheriff’s deputies said.

According to an affidavit, William Clyne, 44, 15419 Nava St., was arrested for armed burglary battery and attempted murder in the stabbing that took place at 7336 Moravian Drive.

Patricia Souza has lived off and on with Clyne for three years, and they have a child together. Clyne moved out two weeks ago, however, and her brother Stephan Colleton moved in after Clyne made threats against her, according to the affidavit.

About 12:35 a.m., while Colleton was sleeping on a couch, Clyne broke the door down and charged at him, armed with a knife. The two fought, and Clyne stabbed Colleton in the neck, the affidavit said.

Colleton was able to get the knife, and Clyne fled, the affidavit said.

Clyne was arrested about 9 a.m., and he denied having gone to the home. He had cuts on his arms and hands, and he refused to tell deputies how he had received them, the affidavit said.

He is being held without bail at Pasco County Jail.
