(Cushing, Okla.) — An arrest warrant was issued Friday for a Texas man accused of breaking into his girlfriend’s house in Cushing and then hitting her in the face with a cell phone.
Victor Hugo Giron Redond, 35, of Dallas, could be given a prison term of seven to 20 years if convicted of first-degree burglary by kicking open the front door. Giron Redond could be given an additional one-year jail term if convicted of domestic violence.
Cushing Police Officer Cody Carpenter had been sent to the woman’s house on E. 5th Street at 11:27 pm on June 18 on a report of domestic violence, his affidavit said.
The victim said she had attempted to call 911 at 5:53 pm that day “because Giron Redond started to get mad at her because he thought (she) was cheating on him,” but the 911 call ended without her talking to anyone, the affidavit alleged.
She said “she locked her front door and went into a back bedroom to avoid a confrontation with Giron Redond,” the affidavit alleged.
She said at 11:20 pm, after she heard a pop come from the front of the house, Giron Redond came through her bedroom door, got on top of her, and hit her with the cell phone she was holding, the affidavit alleged. She said “Giron Redond threw the phone in the room and she could not locate it,” the affidavit alleged.
She said “Giron Redond left in a black pickup truck, but could not be more specific. (She) stated she then called 911 via her Apple watch call function,” the affidavit alleged.
She said, “they were only boyfriend and girlfriend, but did not live together,” the affidavit alleged.
She said, “Giron Redond might be headed to Texas, which is where they both are from…(She) was able to provide a possible cell phone number for Giron Redond,” and a recent picture showing some tattoos that could be used to identify him, the affidavit alleged.
“I observed a red mark on the right side of her chin, which is where she stated Giron Redond hit her with the cell phone,” and observed a bloody fingernail on her right hand that she said might be from her attempt to fight off Giron Redond, the Cushing officer alleged in his affidavit.
“I also observed significant damage to the locking mechanism of the front door to the residence,” the officer alleged.
After the officer left, Giron Redond’s girlfriend called the Cushing Police Department to provide the license plate number and a possible address where he might be headed to in Texas, the affidavit alleged.
At 2:05 am the next morning, when the Cushing officer called Giron Redond, he admitted he kicked in his girlfriend’s door, the affidavit alleged.
“Giron Redond also stated there was no problem with ‘his lady’ and that he did not want any problems. I told Giron Redond there was a problem because of the mark on (her) face. Giron Redond stated (she) hit him in his face and hands.
“There was a language barrier between myself and Giron Redond, as he spoke very little English. I attempted to speak with him in Spanish, but could not understand him. I asked Giron Redond where he was and he stated he did not know where he was, only he was still in Oklahoma,” the Cushing officer alleged in his affidavit.
The Cushing officer asked a dispatcher to send a notice to surrounding law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for Giron Redond that included his Texas license plate, his description, and his photo provided by his girlfriend, the affidavit alleged.
