Man Arrested for Aggravated Assault with an Ax

A man was arrested in Bay City after bringing an ax to a fight.

Last Saturday, January 29th, officers were called about a fight in progress involving weapons.

Upon arrival, a witness was able to point out a vehicle leaving the scene, and the suspect with the ax was in that vehicle.

Officers stopped the car, and determined the driver of the vehicle, identified as Estevan Trevino Jr, was swinging the hatchet and pocket knife towards a crowd of people.

No one was injured, but victims who felt threatened did wish to pursue charges.

During the investigation, officers were able to locate two bags with cocaine.

After completing the investigation, Trevino was transported to the Matagorda County Jail and booked in for two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance.
