POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Polk County Sheriff’s office arrested a 43-year-old Onalaska man Monday in connection to allegations that he got mad over his 14-year-old step-son forgetting to close the yard gate and whacked the boy in the head with a frying pan.

Absalom Gonzalez is still being held in the Polk County jail on a first-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge and a misdemeanor assault causing bodily injury-family member charge. Collectively, his bail amount has been set at $30,000.

According to the arrest affidavit, a Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched out to a home in the 200 block of White Oak Cove in the Yaupon Cove subdivision Sunday. Once he got there, he met with the 14-year-old victim and his mother.

The alleged victim told the PCSO deputy that Gonzalez, his step-father got angry because he didn’t shut the yard gate and assaulted him, the affidavit stated. After the teen ran outside to get away from his step-father, Gonzalez allegedly sneaked around the house and hit the boy in the head with a frying pan, knocking him unconscious.

According to the affidavit, the victim told the PCSO deputy that he woke up to find Gonzalez punching him in the face.
