A man accused of beating a woman unconscious and shaving her head was indicted this month on a charge of aggravated assault of a family member with a weapon.

A Parker County Grand Jury returned an indictment against Thomas Edward Romero earlier this month.

Romero, 40, was arrested Nov. 20 on charges of aggravated assault of a family member with a weapon and unlawful restraint — exposing to serious bodily injury after deputies received a 911 call shortly after 1 p.m. from the 100 block of Gunnison Court in the Azle area.

A responding deputy found a 32-year-old woman at a neighbor’s house with two swollen eyes, a cut on the right side of her head, swelling and bruising on the top of her head, bruising on both legs at the back of the knees and bruising on her stomach. The hair on her head and eyebrows had also been shaved, the arrest warrant affidavit stated.

The woman told police Romero became angry the morning of Nov. 19 and he began yelling at her when she told him she was leaving, the officer’s statement reads.

When she put her shoes on and began walking to the door, Romero closed the door and pushed her onto the couch, jumped on top of her and began hitting her with a closed fist more than 20 times, the affidavit alleges.

He also hit her with a computer monitor in the chest and stomach, according to the affidavit.

The woman told police the next thing she remembered was waking up to Romero using an electric shaver to shave her eyebrows and hair.

He reportedly told her that if she resisted he would do much worse to her, according to the affidavit.

After cutting her hair, she said Romero reportedly threw a lamp and glass at her, according to the affidavit.

When Romero began yelling at her again the afternoon of Nov. 20, she said she became afraid he would start hitting her again so she ran out the front door and went to a neighbor’s house for help, where they called 911, the affidavit states.

Organized criminal activity

Five people were indicted by the grand jury on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity relating to marijuana.
