A 29 year old Sulphur Springs man was arrested for aggravated assault after allegedly admitting to assaulting a female victim.
The victim of the assault received treatment for the assault at the Winnsboro ER when the assault was reported to Winnsboro PD, according to arrest reports. Winnsboro PD spoke with the victim and then contacted Hopkins County law enforcement.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office officers spoke to the victim once she returned to her residence in Sulphur Springs. The officers then went to speak to the suspect, Uber Garcia, at Christus Mother Frances-Sulphur Springs. Garcia reportedly went to the hospital to seek a mental health evaluation.
Garcia allegedly told officers that he and the victim began arguing after leaving a birthday party in Winnsboro. He admitted to officers that he became enraged and struck the victim with his fist. He stated that he doesn’t remember also striking the victim in the head with a pistol he kept in his vehicle but that he had been told that he had.
Garcia told officers that they arrived back at their residence and then he assisted the victim with taking a shower to clean up the blood that was on her from the assault.
Garcia was taken into custody and is held at Hopkins County Jail. He is charged with Aggravated Assault of a Date/Family/Household Member with a Deadly Weapon.
