LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A 29-year-old Lufkin woman accused of trying several times to run her boyfriend over and then stabbing him back in February was one of 32 people indicted during the last meeting of the Angelina County grand jury.

Timethia Marchelle Williams was indicted on two felony charges - aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and forgery by passing. Her bail amount has been set at $7,500.

When Williams was arrested on February 13 and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, she was also charged with four misdemeanors.

She has been arrested again since then on unrelated charges. On Sept. 1, she was arrested for forgery of a financial instrument, Class C misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, a motion to revoke probation charge for theft between $50 and $500, two misdemeanor traffic charges, and four capias pro fine charges.

Williams was released after she posted bail on those charges on Sept. 5

The Lufkin Police Department's daily activity report stated the incident occurred at about 9:43 p.m. on Feb. 13 in the 700 block of Moore Avenue. 
Police say Williams tried repeatedly to run over her boyfriend in her white GMC Yukon SUV. After multiple attempts, authorities say Williams jumped out of the vehicle and charged at her boyfriend with a knife, stabbing him in the arm.

According to police, that's when the boyfriend attempted to drive off in the SUV, but not before Williams threw a brick, smashing one of the vehicle's windows.

The Angelina County grand jury also indicted Josue Mijares, 40, of Diboll on a felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge in connection to allegations he got drunk at a woman's house and then threatened her, saying he was a member of the Mexican mafia.

Mijares' bail amount has been set at $,7500, and he is still being held in the Angelina County Jail, according to the indictments list.

According to the arrest affidavit, a Hudson PD officer was dispatched out to the Lazy Acres Mobile Park on Ted Trout Drive on Sept. 12 in reference to an assault in progress. When he got to the scene, he learned that the people involved in the alleged assault had fled in a Dodge pickup and a car, which were both part of a separate incident that occurred at a different location.

The Hudson PD officer spoke with an Angelina County Sheriff's Office deputy who had contained the scene, and he noticed damage to the rear end of a car parked at that address, the affidavit stated.

When the Hudson PD officer spoke to witnesses at the scene, he learned that Mijares had called one of the alleged victims and said that he was coming to her home, and he and two other men came over any way, the affidavit stated. Mijares and the two men "consumed large amounts of alcoholic beverages," and by 10:30 p.m. that night, Mijares had declared his love for the woman.

After the woman "did not return the same affection" to Mijares, he started yelling at the woman and her family and calling them names, the affidavit stated. Mijares allegedly refused to leave when the woman told him to, and she pushed him outside.

Once he was outside, Mijares, continued to yell at the woman. He allegedly told her that she didn't know who she was messing with and claimed to be a member of the Mexican mafia.

According to the affidavit, the woman had her mother contact her brother. He, a family friend, and two other people drove to his sister's house and told Mijares to leave. At that point, he allegedly brandished an open-bladed knife and threatened the people at the scene with it.

The woman told everyone to leave because she was about to call the police, the affidavit stated.

When the family friend drove away in her car, Mijares followed them in his pickup, the affidavit stated. Mijares then allegedly tried to run them off the road by ramming the family friend's car.

As the family friend pulled into her driveway, Mijares allegedly rammed her car again. The woman told police that she was injured in the incident, but it didn't require medical attention.

After the female friend of the first woman and the others bailed out of the car, Mijares rammed it several more times, and his passenger jumped out before Mijares fled the scene in his pickup, the affidavit stated.

When Mijares was located later, further investigation revealed that the front of his Dodge pickup had damage that was consistent with witness statements about him ramming the rear end of the family friend's car, the affidavit stated.

In addition, the Angelina County grand jury indicted Jonathan Durell Cole, 28, of Lufkin, on a felony burglary with the intent to commit another felony charge.

Cole is accused of entering a Lufkin couple's home on Nov. 15 and assaulting them with a metal object.

Lt. David Young, a spokesman for the Lufkin Police Department, said LPD officers obtained an arrest warrant for Cole and picked him up Thursday night.

According to the Lufkin Police Department's Facebook page, the incident took place at a home on James Avenue at about 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 15.

The woman said she was in the living room of their home when a black man entered and stood over her. She thought he had a gun because he had one hand behind his back, the Facebook post stated.

After the woman asked who the man was, she tried to run to a back room for safety. At that point, the suspect allegedly hit her in the head with an unknown metal object.

When the husband, who was in the backyard at the time, heard his wife's screams for help, he rushed inside the home to help, the Facebook post stated. The suspect then hit the husband in the head and arm with the metal object.

Children who were in the home at the time of the attack told Lufkin PD officers they thought the object was a crowbar.

"The couple was taken by ambulance to CHI St. Luke's Health Memorial Lufkin for non-life-threatening injuries," the Facebook post stated.

Here is a list of other notable indictments.

  • Laquita Lashay Ruth, 30, of Lufkin, was indicted for possession of a controlled substance and having a prohibited substance in a correctional facility or jail. After an Angelina County Sheriff's deputy arrested her on Aug. 24, 2014, on outstanding misdemeanor warrants from the Lufkin Police Department, a search at the jail allegedly revealed that she had hidden two small rocks believed to be crack cocaine, a partially smoked marijuana cigarette, and a glass pipe  in her pubic area.
  • Dustin Kyle Oliver, 29, of Huntington, was indicted on a retaliation charge. The charge stems from allegations that he harassed a deputy over a recent traffic stop and told him, “I am going to rip your f---ing head off” when he encountered the deputy at a Lufkin restaurant back in August.
  • Karon Renee Hopson, 57, of Lufkin, was indicted on an injury to the elderly charge. She is accused of punching her 82-year-old father in the head multiple times, knocking him off a porch, and then jumping on him with both feet back in October.
