Richmond police arrested a man for second-degree assault and fourth-degree assault after he allegedly attacked two different people early Thursday morning.
According to the first citation, officers were called to Barringer Lane where Victim 1 lived. It was reported Julio Antonio, 30, Siesta Drive, Richmond, was forcing Victim 1 into an apartment.
When officers arrived, the caller said they could hear Victim 1 screaming, and officers approached the apartment, the citation states. Officers knocked, and both Antonio and Victim 1 went to the door to speak with police.
Victim 1 was hysterical, according to the citation, and said Antonio had grabbed them by their neck during an argument, the citation states. Officers spoke with Antonio, who said he and the victim were arguing over "little things." Because of a language barrier, it was difficult for officers to talk with him.
Antonio was then taken to the Madison County Detention Center and booked into jail for the fourth-degree assault charge.
Shortly after he was booked into jail, officers were called to St. Joseph Berea's emergency room in reference to an assault that also occurred at Victim 1's apartment, a second citation states.
The victim in the ER (Victim 2) had suffered a broken forearm, a dislocated finger and a possible broken finger, according to physicians, the citation states.
Officers spoke with Victim 2, who said they were messaged by Victim 1 earlier in the night to go over to their apartment, but when Victim 2 arrived at the apartment, they weren't able to contact Victim 1, the citation states. Victim 2 waited in parking lot a few minutes longer and saw Antonio walk in front of their vehicle.
Antonio then walked to the driver's side of Victim 2's vehicle, opened the door and assaulted Victim 2 with a construction type level, the second citation states. Victim 2 was able to put their vehicle in reverse and speed away from Antonio.
Police then went to the MCDC to talk with Antonio and gained consent to search their vehicle, the second citation states. Officers went back to Victim 1's apartment and searched the vehicle, where they found a construction type level that matched the description Victim 2 gave.
Officers also spoke to Victim 1 again, who said they witnessed Antonio assault Victim 2, the second citation states.
Antonio was taken back to the jail and was released later on Thursday, according to online jail records.

Kentucky State Police arrested Jesse Hawkins, 35, Dreyfus Road, Waco, for five counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, menacing, two counts of third-degree assault (police or probation officer) and two counts of third-degree criminal mischief after troopers responded to a 911 hangup on Dreyfus Road Thursday afternoon.
While troopers were on their way, they were told it was over property in regards to a vehicle, and they stopped at the residence where the call was made from, according to a citation. The residence owners said they received a call from Hawkins' family member, who said Hawkins was at their home, and they didn't want him there.
Troopers went to the family member's residence, and the back door was open, the citation states. They walked in and saw Hawkins in a recliner with several guns around him and in his lap. Troopers told him to place his hands above his head while they remove the guns from around him. Each gun was loaded.
Hawkins said he was just going to clean the guns and informed police he's a convicted felon. Troopers then told Hawkins he can't be around guns, and Hawkins said, "'(expletive) off cause their his rights to have guns,'" the citation reads. Hawkins said he wasn't going to jail.
Hawkins then stood up in a trooper's face with closed fists and again said he wasn't going to jail, the citation states. Troopers told him to turn around, and he sat down with his hands behind his back.
As troopers reached for Hawkins' hand, he stated, "'You want to fight, we will fight,'" as he grabbed a trooper's body part and pulled, the citation states. Hawkins tried to fight with two troopers and soiled both uniforms by his blood smearing on their pants.
Hawkins was examined by Madison County EMS before he was taken to the MCDC, where he remained Friday afternoon, according to online jail records.
