A disturbance complaint on Helm Lane Thursday night, March 26, resulted in a 33-year-old Sulphur Springs man’s arrest at 10:37 p.m. for assault by threat. Investigation revealed the man threatened to “bash” in his 78-year-old mother’s face, Sulphur Springs police alleged in arrest reports.
Based on the fact that the man had previously been arrested for assault, other allegations of previous offenses raised, police believed the victim’s fear that the 33-year-old would act on his threats were valid, the SSPD officers noted in arrest reports. Hopkins County jail records show the man was previously arrested on Aug. 4, 2019 on an assault by physical contact and on Feb. 22 on a Class C family violence assault charge.
Believing family violence would occur if no action was taken to protect the victim, officers reported taking the man into custody for family violence assault by threat. Upon arrival at the jail, the man allegedly became aggressive with jail staff and was secured into a special cell designed to protect him and others, according to arrest reports. He remained in Hopkins County jail Friday morning, according to arrest reports.
