An Ector County Sheriff’s Office probable cause affidavit detailed a 23-year-old man struck a 14-year-old boy with his truck twice, slapped and choked his girlfriend, shook a 3-year-old girl and assaulted a 38-year-old woman.

Homero Aguilar Villa was charged with injury to a child causing serious bodily injury (family violence), a first-degree felony, injury to a child (family violence), a third-degree felony, assault causing bodily injury (family violence), a class A misdemeanor, and assault (family violence), a class A misdemeanor.

The reported incident happened at 1 a.m. April 18 in the 700 block of S. Blackfoot Avenue, the affidavit stated. Deputies found a 14-year-old boy lying face down, conscious and breathing on the ground.

The 14-year-old boy is reportedly hospitalized in the surgical intensive care unit at University Medical Center in Lubbock with life altering serious bodily injury.

A witness at the scene, identified as 41-year-old Homero Carrasco Carreon Sr., stated he was the 14-year-old boy’s father, the affidavit stated. Carreon reported Villa was told to leave and then intentionally drove toward his son striking him twice with his vehicle, which was identified as a 1999 Dodge dually truck.

Another witness at the scene, identified as Layza Carreon, reportedly detailed to deputies that she was assaulted by being slapped in the face by Villa after he applied pressure to her throat with his right hand. Layza Carreon stated she has been dating Villa for one year and they live at the same residence.

The assault on Layza Carreon happened after she attempted to regain possession of her 3-year-old daughter from Villa who had picked up the child by both of her arms and shook her, which left redness to both of the girl’s arms, the affidavit detailed.

Layza Carreon’s mother, identified as 38-year-old Mercedez Carreon, reportedly confronted Villa and she was assaulted when Villa grabbed both of Mercedez Carreon’s hands and applied pressure causing pain and later bruising to both of her hands.

Villa was arrested, charged and transported to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center. He has four bonds totaling $42,000 and still in custody as of Monday afternoon, jail records show.
