An inmate at the Tom Bowles Detention Center is reported to have assaulted a jailer on Wednesday, February 20, 2019.
Maverick County Sheriff Tom Schmerber reported that the inmate was identified as 22-year-old Julio Cesar Saucedo.
Saucedo was detained over the weekend for the stabbing of another male adult and has now assaulted a jailer who suffered a head injury during the incident as well.
Sheriff Schmerber states that the inmate assaulted the jailer by pushing him against a metal door thus causing the head injury. The jailer was transported to the Fort Duncan Regional Medical Centers Emergency Room for treatment.
Saucedo’s arrest stems from an Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon that occurred on Friday, February 15 in an area along the 500 block of Commercial Street.
Saucedo now faces additional charges of assaulting the jailer.
