On Sept. 6, a Texas County deputy was dispatched to Texas County Memorial Hospital to contact a victim of an assault. Upon arriving at the hospital, the deputy discovered a female victim with serious injuries. The victim reported that she had been assaulted by her boyfriend on Sept. 4 at a residence on B Highway east of Houston. The victim reported being punched, eyes gouged, hit with a stick and her throat cut with a sharp object. The deputy and medical personnel observed injuries consistent with the reported assault. A male subject that was with the victim at the hospital was taken into custody and interviewed.         
Reed E. Ford, age 27, of Houston, was arrested and transported to the Texas County Jail. Texas County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Jason Macpherson charged Ford with Domestic Assault First Degree and Armed Criminal Action. Ford is held in the Texas County Jail without bond.     
The above charges are mere accusations and are not evidence of guilt. Evidence in support of the charges must be presented before a court of competent jurisdiction whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
