County deputies responded to several calls during the last week. 

The following are excerpts from reports generated by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department:

•A 60-year-old Houston man reported Sunday that he had been assaulted by a 47-year-old Houston man.

The alleged victim told an investigating officer the alleged assailant had driven at a high rate of speed past his Brown Hill Road residence several times, and that on the fourth time he had gone out to the road to confront him about it. The victim said the driver got out of his vehicle and punched him in his left eye, knocking him down, and then kicked him 30 times.

The officer attempted to make contact with the alleged assailant, but was unable to find him. The officer returned to the victim’s house, and he changed his story, indicating the suspect had held a 9-millimeter pistol to his head and pulled the trigger three times, but the gun only clicked and he threw it into a ditch in the weeds.

The officer searched for a weapon but didn’t find one. The officer noted that the alleged victim had in the past reported that someone pulled a gun on him and no weapon was found. A report was sent to the county prosecutor.

•On July 14, a deputy went to a Golden Drive residence at Raymondville to serve civil papers to a 79-year-old man who lives there.

While the officer was there, the man showed him eight marijuana plants growing behind a barn, and said they belonged to his 36-year-old stepson, who also lived there. The officer pulled up the plants and transported them to the Texas County Jail for disposal.

•A deputy was dispatched July 13 to a Highway AW residence at Plato regarding a report of property damage.

The officer determined there was no property damage at the location, but a woman who lives there said she feared for the lives of her family because of a man. The officer advised the woman on steps to take to obtain a restraining order.

•At about 9:50 a.m. July 14, a woman from the Division of Family Services came to the TCSD office and said she had received a report that a boy had broken his leg on a slip-and-slide at a Highway 137 residence at Raymondville.

An investigating officer went with the woman to the location, but nobody was there.

•A man called July 13 to report that a neighbor had placed a large pile of gravel in his driveway and he couldn’t get his car to his Slaughter Road residence at Licking.

An investigating officer observed a small berm that had been placed to divert water, and the property owner confirmed that it was there to keep the driveway from washing out. The officer tried to make contact with the man who made the complaint, but was unable to reach him.

•A deputy was dispatched July 6 regarding a report of property damage at a church at Varvel Road and Highway HH at Willow Springs.

The officer observed that the church’s sign had been shot and the door kicked, but nothing was apparently stolen. There are no suspects.

•A deputy on July 7 investigated a reported theft at an 80-year-old Cabool man’s Highway M residence.

Swiped items reportedly included a tractor valued at $2,000, an ATV worth $400 and a mower estimated at $200. A 46-year-old Mountain Grove man is a suspect.

•A deputy was dispatched July 10 regarding a report of theft at a Veda Road residence at Success.

A 41-year-old man there told the officer a cargo trailer that had broken into and several items with a total value of $510 had been swiped. There are no suspects.
