Aggravated assault  

Police said at 9:41 p.m. on Thursday, officers went to a residence in the 1700 block of Utah to investigate a person hit by a car. They had been told the driver of a vehicle had intentionally run over a female and fled the scene. They later learned the driver also called the police and said he was waiting at the Valero at Missouri and Highway 146. Detectives learned that the man waiting at Valero had actually been at the residence when he was assaulted by a man and a woman at the residence, who struck him with beer bottles and kicked him while he was on the ground. The man suffered injuries to his face and head but was able to make it to his car in an attempt to escape the attacks. The same man and woman started striking his car, shattering his windows. The driver tried to escape the scene and in the process ran over the female, which caused injuries to her legs and possible internal injuries. She was flown to Hermann Hospital in Houston, treated and released. No charges have been filed. The case is still under investigation.
