LOCKNEY, TX (KCBD) -

The former Lockney ISD softball and track coach has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault. According to deputies with the Floyd County Sheriff's Office, this morning 49-year-old Ray Jimenez arrived at a woman’s house in Floydada where they had a verbal argument. When police arrived, Jimenez was no longer on the scene.

Officials with the Floyd County sheriff’s Office say Jimenez drove to Lockney, to the victim’s place of work. She works at the Lockney Health and Rehabilitation Center at 401 N Main Street.

Deputies say Jimenez went through the back door to the woman’s office and stabbed her two times. Deputies arrived and Jimenez was taken to the Garza County Jail where he is currently being held.

The woman was taken to the Mangold Memorial Hospital and then transferred to University Medical Center in Lubbock. Officials say she is in stable condition.

Jimenez was the track and softball coach at Lockney ISD, according to officials with the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office. Sources say Jimenez resigned this morning before the incidents with the woman and police.

The Lockney ISD Superintendent released the following statement:

At approximately 9:08 this morning, the Lockney ISD administration was informed by law enforcement authorities that a former employee of the District engaged in an alleged aggravated assault against an employee of a local residential care facility. The alleged assault occurred at the residential care facility where the victim worked and not at the school. At no time was the safety of Lockney ISD students at risk during the incident.

It is the District's understanding that the Floyd County Sherriff's Department has apprehended the perpetrator and that the victim is being treated for the injuries sustained during the incident. The District has been cooperating with law enforcement in its investigation into this matter, and it will continue to do so as the investigation continues.
