A 25-year-old Livingston man accused of assaulting his grandmother in August of 2016 now has felony warrants out for his arrest after he was a “no show” at a Polk County court hearing on Tuesday.

Polk County District Attorney Lee Hon said that Thorn Allen Kinser, 25, didn’t show up for a court hearing on Tuesday, and his bonds were forfeited. Hon said the active warrants now out on Kinser include aggravated assault, injury to an elderly person, and possession of a controlled substance.

“Anyone with knowledge of his location can contact the Polk County District Attorney’s Office at (936) 327-6868 or the Polk County Sheriff’s Department at (936) 327-6810,” Hon said.

According to an arrest affidavit, a deputy met with a 65-year-old woman at the sheriff's office on August 17, 2016. The woman said her grandson had gotten angry and struck her with an extension cord on the leg while jerking the plug out of the wall. She said he then grabbed her and pushed her against the wall while yelling at her.

The affidavit states the woman's visible injuries were consistent with her story.

The investigator obtained a warrant for Kinser's arrest on Aug. 17, 2016, and he was arrested the same day.
