A Parker County grand jury charged Juan Pedro Lopez, 21, on Sept. 3 after he was arrested on charges of stabbing a woman he was living with in the neck three times.

On June 3, Weatherford Police Department officers were dispatched to the 2300 block of Bethel Road in response to a 911 call indicating an ambulance was needed “in a hurry,” according to the probable cause affidavit.

“[Officers were] unable to locate any person that showed signs of need from the 2300 block of Bethel Road, the Weatherford High School parking lot was also searched,” according to the affidavit. “[Officers] were then informed by dispatch at approximately 12:31 a.m. that the reporting vehicle, a blue Ford Explorer, was currently in the parking lot at Whataburger on 1212 S. Main Street. Dispatch also advised that the caller's wife that was in the vehicle had been stabbed by two black males.”

Officers observed Lopez in the driver’s seat and a white female in the passenger’s side of the vehicle holding her neck with her hands and appearing to be applying pressure, according to the affidavit. The woman appeared to be in distress and informed one of the officers she had been stabbed in the neck. The officer observed three lacerations to the left side of the woman’s neck. Lifecare EMS arrived on the scene and the woman was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth.

Lopez gave the officers consent to go into the home he was living in where blood was located on the front door, the sheets in the bedroom and in the bathroom, according to the affidavit. A knife with blood and long black hair matching the woman’s was then located in the kitchen sink.

After assessing all the evidence found at the residence, Lopez was arrested and booked into the Parker County Jail.

“Mr. Lopez is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury to a family member,” Assistant District Attorney Jeff Swain said. “That offense is a first degree felony punishable by 5 to 99 years or life in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. After indictment, his case was randomly assigned in the 43rd District Court, Judge Craig Towson presiding.”

Lopez is being held on a $500,000 bond.

A Parker County grand jury also indicted Justin Lamond Savage, 25, of Weatherford, for causing serious bodily injury to a 3-year-old boy.

On May 13, a nurse at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth contact the Parker County Sheriff’s Office in regards to the boy, who had been transported from an address in the 400 block of Watkins Trail in Weatherford, according to the probable cause affidavit. The child was reported to have severe head trauma consistent with physical abuse.

Savage was alone with the child at the residence at the time the incident occurred and told hospital staff that the boy fell while walking, which was determined by hospital staff to be inconsistent with the 3-year-old’s injuries, according to the affidavit. At the beginning of an interview with PCSO investigator, Savage stuck to the story that the boy fell while walking.

“However, later in the interview, the defendant said that he had his foot on the victim’s neck/collarbone area and was rocking back and forth in a ‘playful’ manner, until the victim suddenly made a strange noise and went limp,” according to the affidavit. “The defendant said that he picked the victim up off the ground, holding the victim under the arms but that he was not responsive. The defendant said that he dropped the victim onto the ground, where his head hit the floor and made a thumping noise. The defendant said that the victim began to display slow and labored breathing.”

Savage told the investigator that he then called 911 to request medical assistance.

“If Mr. Savage is convicted of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury, he will be facing a sentence of 5 to 99 years or life in prison and a fine of up to $10,000,” Swain said. “His case is pending in the 415th District Court, Judge Graham Quisenberry presiding.”

Savage was arrested and booked into the Parker County Jail on May 13 on a $50,000 and bonded out on May 14.
