A Texas man is wanted by Houston police for allegedly beating his wife and hurting his stepson. The alleged incident occurred back in June, but police have yet to make an arrest. Violent crimes such as domestic violence are not taken lightly, and police will do everything necessary to bring the accused in to face trial for his alleged actions.
According to reports, a 33-year-old male was in his home in North Houston when he supposedly started punching his wife. The woman's 7-year-old son was also home at the time and tried to stop the violence. Unfortunately, in doing so, he was thrown back and injured when his head hit an object.
The accused left the scene and has not returned home since. A $5,000 reward is being offered to anyone who shares information that leads to a charge or arrest. The accused is described as 5 foot 8 inches tall with brown eyes, black hair and tattoos on his chest.
Violent crimes like this must be handled delicately in order to protect the victims and the accused. This is not an easy feat. Thankfully, fighting a criminal case is not something the accused will have to do on his own when he is eventually caught and charged. There may be a number of defense options that can help him as he navigates the Texas criminal court system. This individual's legal counsel will be able to ask the tough questions, investigate the matter fully and seek for ways to help the client achieve the best outcome possible.
