A Perry man was arrested early Sunday for allegedly assaulting a woman.
Josue Guevara Jimenez, 39, of 411 Fourth St., Perry, was charged with first-offense domestic abuse assault-bodily injury or mental illness.
The incident began about 2:45 a.m. Sunday in the 400 block of Fourth Street, where officers of the Perry Police Department responded to a report of a domestic disturbance.
Arriving officers found Guevara Jimenez and the victim and the victim’s two daughters outside the residence.
Speaking through a translator, the victim said Guevara Jimenez “entered their residence through a window, and she was later allegedly “kicked several times in the arm” while trying to persuade Guevara Jimenez “to get off the couch,” according to court records.
The victim told officers she “went outside to remove tools from a shared trailer,” where Guevara Jimenez allegedly “grabbed her by her hair in an attempt to drag her inside.”
The victim told officers Guevara Jimenez also allegedly “placed his hand over the victim’s face to push her away” and “hit the victim in the face with a closed fist,” according to court records.
The officers allegedly observed “red marks and bruising” on the victim’s body.
Guevara Jimenez “initially stated that nothing physical happened but then changed his story to him and the victim getting into an altercation,” according to court records.
Guevara Jimenez was held in the Dallas County Jail prior to posting a $1,000 cash or surety bind. He is scheduled for a preliminary Nov. 2 in Dallas County District Court.
