Sheriff: Man arrested after cutting wife’s nose

April 27, 2013

A 27-year-old Hood County man who cut his wife’s nose with a knife and struck her in the face with his fist was arrested by a Hood County Sheriff’s Office deputy and faces two felony charges, according to Hood County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose.

Deputies responded to a 911 call April 19 about a disturbance at a residence and arrested Troy Don Yates in the 1300 block of Cochise in the Indian Harbor subdivision south of Granbury.

“Yates fled the scene, but was stopped down the road by deputies,” Rose stated. “During the stop deputies discovered that Yates was intoxicated and had his 5-year-old son in the vehicle with him. The child was turned over to its mother upon her arrival at the scene. The wife was treated at the scene and refused to be transported to the hospital.”

In addition to the aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge, Yates also faces a felony count of DWI with child passenger (under 15), and a misdemeanor charge of driving with an invalid license, Rose noted. Yates was released from the Hood County Jail after posting bonds totaling $19,500.


A 53-year-old Hood County man who assaulted his wife on April 17 by choking her with his hands was arrested by a deputy, Rose stated.

The deputies responded to the residence of Kenneth Keith Schreiber in the 5200 block of Wedgefield Road in Pecan Plantation after 911 dispatch received a call reporting a disturbance. Rose declined when asked to state what triggered the argument.

Schreiber was charged with felony family violence/choking, the lieutenant said.

The victim was not seriously injured, Rose said. She was treated at Lake Granbury Medical Center and released.
