Bryan police responding to a fifth call for a domestic dispute last Sunday ends with them arresting a former Navasota resident.
The BPD arrest report states they were called to a home on Carter Creek Parkway for a disturbance with a weapon early Sunday morning. A female victim stated that her boyfriend “nearly broke” her neck, and choked her. The woman stated he had a knife, and that she was hiding in her adult son’s room
Officers made contact with the woman, who had clear red marks on her neck, and was visibly upset. She told officers the two began arguing, and it eventually led to the bedroom, where the man pulled her hair and placed her in a choke-hold.
Officers contacted the man in a back bedroom, who became irate and belligerent when asked about the woman’s injuries. He stated she “probably did it to herself.” Police found the aforementioned knife next to him.
He was placed under arrest, and identified as 50 year old Orlando Castillo Lerma of Bryan, formerly Navasota. During his detainment, Lerma began pulling away and kicking to resist arrest.
The report noted it was the fifth time that evening police made contact with them, with neither wanting to leaver the residence earlier after verbal arguments.
He was booked in the Brazos County jail on charges of Assault Family Violence with Previous Conviction, and Resisting Arrest. Lerma has since been released after posting a $29,000 bond.
