Woman assaulted with car, tire iron

A Victoria man is in the Victoria County Jail after assaulting a woman Friday night, said Sgt. Lee Lemmons, of the Victoria Police Department.

Robert Rodriguez, 28, was arrested Friday night and charged with causing bodily injury to a family member.

The 24-year-old Victoria woman was hit by a car at the intersection of Depot and North streets and then dragged on the road by the car.

Lemmons said it is reported that Rodriguez and possibly one other suspect then used a tire iron to assault her. She was transported to DeTar Hospital Navarro. Her condition was not available Saturday.
