Assault suspect dozes off

Exhaustion led to the arrest of an assault suspect on Sunday.

Cleburne police responded at 12:22 p.m. to Weeks Road. The victim told police her common-law spouse held a knife to her throat all night until he finally fell asleep. 

Police arrested the man, Jason Daniel Ferguson, 40, of Cleburne, on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Ronny McBroom set Ferguson’s bond at $15,000 on Tuesday.

Police responded at 4:37 a.m. the same day to reports of a man on a motorcycle chasing a woman in her vehicle. Police located the motorcycle in the 300 block of West Henderson Street and conducted a traffic stop. They arrested Dustin Jarred Steward, 30, of Granbury, on charges of driving while license invalid, unlawfully carrying a weapon and prohibited weapon.

McBroom set Steward’s bond at $3,000 later that same day.

Police responded at 5:31 a.m. Wednesday to the 700 block of North Main Street. Sometime during the night someone broke the drive-thru window of Monte’s Breakfast Burritos and stole a cash register. The absence of money in the registers apparently did not sit well with the burglar. Police collected pieces of the busted up register from the woods behind the restaurant.

Police responded to a hit-and-run and subsequently arrested the driver at about 3:50 a.m. Saturday in the 1000 block of West Westhill Drive.

The driver of a Honda Fit crashed into a brick mailbox and fled on foot. Police located the driver, Shanda Block, 23, of Cleburne, and arrested her for leaving the scene of an accident. Block suffered no injuries in the crash.

One Cleburne woman failed to heed officer’s orders and found herself in jail on Monday. Police responded at 4:25 p.m. to the 1900 block of East Henderson Street where the woman, Tania Anne Kopf, 50, of Cleburne, was allegedly standing in the roadway begging for money. Police several times told her to get out of the road and eventually arrested her on a charge of pedestrian in roadway.
