1 jailed, 1 injured in aggravated assault

By TODD GLASSCOCK

One man was jailed and one woman injured as a result of an aggravated assault Wednesday, March 26, at apartments in the 300 block of N.W. 5th Street.

Chance Howard Moss, 19, of Mineral Wells, remained in Palo Pinto County Jail on two counts of  aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and duty on striking fixture/highway landscape under $200. Bonds of $100,000 each were set for the two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and $3,000 for the duty on striking charges.

Transported by AirEvac to Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth with non-life-threatening injuries was Katherine Clark, 44, of Mineral Wells, a Mineral Wells police spokesman said. Her current condition was not known.

Mineral Wells Police responded to a disturbance call at an apartment building at 8:22 p.m. that Wednesday to find several people being detained by a Palo Pinto County sheriff's deputy, and Ms. Clark laying on the ground at 600 N.W. 2nd Ave., which intersects with the 300 block of N.W. 5th Street, the police spokesman said.

According to the police narrative, the investigating officer learned that Clark had been struck by a vehicle. The woman's son told police a husband and wife were fighting and that he and his mother tried to break up the fight.

While Clark and her son were trying to break up the fight, the narrative reads, the couple began fighting again. As this fight escalated, the woman attempted to leave the scene in a vehicle and the man grabbed the vehicle's door and was dragged by the vehicle until he let go of the door.

At this point, Chance Moss, the man's brother, arrived in his black Dodge pickup after his brother had called to be picked up, the narrative reads. Moss arrived as the woman was leaving and began pursuing her vehicle. Shortly, the two drivers returned to the scene, the woman parking her vehicle at 600 N.W. 2nd Ave., leaving it and walking onto the apartment building's lawn. Moss then left his pickup and entered her vehicle to take the keys from the ignition.
