LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A man Lubbock police say held his ex-girlfriend against her will, stands indicted. A grand jury indicted Ricky Hampton, 25, on aggravated assault, violation of a protective order, and burglary of a habitation charges.
Police say Hampton broke into his ex-girlfriend's mobile home in the early morning of April 15th. Once inside, he allegedly kicked her several times, and used a drill and screws on the door to prevent her from leaving. Officers kicked in the door to the mobile home and took Hampton into custody.
A Lubbock teen could soon stand trial for attempted murder charges in two separate cases. Joshua Gonzales, 17, was indicted Tuesday by a Lubbock grand jury for attempted murder, attempted capital murder, and aggravated robbery.
Gonzales is charged with attempted murder for an incident last June when a Lubbock man was shot in the head as he interrupted two men breaking into his car.
According to police reports - on the morning of June 4th, Felipe Acevedo heard his car alarm going off. Police believe that's when Acevedo looked out his bedroom window and saw two men breaking into his black Suburban. Acevedo banged on the window to get the burglars' attention. And that's when one of the suspects fired shots at Acevedo's window, one hitting him in the head.
Gonzales is indicted for attempted capital murder and aggravated robbery for his involvement in a carjacking almost two years ago. Investigators believe Gonzales and three others shot 20-year-old Donald Adkins during a carjacking in the 4800 block of Kemper Street back in July 2007. Detectives believe the men stripped Adkins' car and sold the parts to buy drugs.
