FLOYD COUNTY, TX (KCBD) - A pretrial hearing was scheduled for former Lockney ISD coach Raynol Jimenez on Thursday afternoon, but no trial date has been set yet.

Jimenez is charged with aggravated assault, accused of following a woman to her place of work and stabbing her after an argument on March 28, 2018.

According to deputies with the Floyd County Sheriff's Office, 49-year-old Ray Jimenez had a verbal argument at a woman's house in Floydada when she called police. But 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, 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.

Jimenez was the track and softball coach at Lockney ISD. Sources say Jimenez resigned the morning before the incidents with the woman and police.

The Lockney ISD Superintendent released the following statement back in 2018:

“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.”
