HUDSON, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man is facing a burglary charge after his ex-wife says he broke into her home and assaulted her in December by hitting her and even using a hot curling iron in the attack.

Tony R. McCarver, 45, is charged with second-degree burglary with intent to commit assault.

According to an arrest affidavit, Hudson police were called to the 4000 block of Ted Trout Drive at 8:39 p.m. on Dec. 15.

An officer reported that he was met by a woman who said that her ex-husband, McCarver, had come into her house through a side window near the carport. She said she walked into the living room where McCarver was, and he began assaulting her without any provocation.

The woman said she ran to the bedroom, where he shoved her to the floor and struck her a number of times with a closed fist to the head and face.

The woman said she then ran into the bathroom, where McCarver hit her in the face with a hot curling iron and then threw bathroom decorations at her, breaking a mirror.

She said she was then able to regain her balance and tried to run into the living room to escape through a window, but she was caught in the bedroom, and McCarver grabbed her by the hair and threw her down and tried to hit her several more times. The woman said she was able to block the blows with bed linens and a pillow.

The woman said she then got to the living room, and McCarver cursed at her and ran out the front door.

Police got a warrant for McCarver's arrest on Dec. 16. Jail records show he was booked into jail on Friday and he has posted a $10,000 bail.
