Baytown police are looking for Lamar Mitchell, 33, who is wanted on charges of attempted kidnapping.  

On Sunday night, officers responded to an assault at an apartment in the 100 block of Arbor Street where the victim alleged that Mitchell had grabbed him and attempted to drag him into his vehicle while making threats, police said. 

“The complainant was ultimately able to break free from Mitchell and escape,” Lt. Steve Dorris, Baytown police spokesman, said. “Charges of attempted kidnapping have been accepted by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office on Mitchell however he is still at large.” 

If anyone knows his whereabouts, they are asked to contact the Baytown Police at 281-422-8371. 

Aggravated assault 

Two men were arrested Sunday night after they got into an altercation with another man that resulted in a stabbing.

Delfino Mata, 59, got into an altercation with another man at Dirty D’s Tavern around 9 p.m. Sunday. 

“During that altercation, Mata allegedly stabbed the complainant in the abdomen several times,” Lt. Steve Dorris, Baytown police spokesman, said. “Also during the incident, one of Mata’s friends, 44-year-old Carlos Resendez of Baytown, broke a window out of vehicle in the parking lot, before both subjects left the bar.” 

Officers later located the two at a residence on Savell Street where both men were taken into custody and transported to the Baytown Jail. 

Mata was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and Resendez was charged with criminal mischief.
