LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Lufkin Police officers arrested a 19-year-old man on Friday after he allegedly pulled out a box cutter and threatened his "on again/off again" girlfriend and then struck her repeatedly before driving off in her car.

Travion Deshun Williams, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on two felony charges - aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. His charges also include outstanding misdemeanor warrants for aggravated assault causing bodily injury and assault-family violence.

Williams' bail was set at $2,000 for the misdemeanor charges. No bail amounts have been set for his felony charges.

Sgt. David Casper, a spokesman for the Lufkin Police Department, said that Williams' "on again/off again" girlfriend told police that she, Williams, and a female friend were riding around in complainant's car when Williams got angry. Williams then pulled out a box cutter and threatened to kill her Casper said.

The woman stopped near some friends at a Lufkin park, and she and her friend jumped out of the car, Casper said. Williams allegedly struck her repeatedly with his hands as she was leaving the vehicle.

"[Williams] then got into the driver's seat and fled in the vehicle," Casper said.

After the LPD officers separated the girlfriend from her friend, both women told police the same story.

Casper said Lufkin Police officers located the girlfriend's abandoned vehicle a few blocks from a house, where they believed Williams could be found. The LPD officers got consent to search the residence and found Williams inside. He was taken into custody without any further incident.

The officers also located a pair of shorts with Williams' ID and a box cutter in the pocket, Casper said.
