      Fishy situation lands Primera brothers in trouble

      Two brothers suspected in aggravated assault case

      Authorities are looking for a man after he and his brother allegedly beat two Primera brothers from another family in an ongoing dispute about fish.

      Primera police said 25 year-old Ruben Lozoya and his brother, Ricardo, have been in an ongoing dispute with brothers Rafael and Rene Puga.

      Police Chief Manuel Trevio told Action 4 News that the feud started when the Puga brothers allegedly sold fish that belong to the Lozoyas.

      But the dispute escalated on Thursday, May 16th when the Lozoya brothers allegedly threw rocks and bricks at the Puga brothers.

      According to reports, 39-year-old Rafael Puga, suffered a laceration to his face while 41-year-old Rene Puga suffered injuries to his hip area and right arm.

      Paramedics rushed both brothers to a local hospital for medical attention.

      The Lozoya brothers both fled the scene before the officers arrived but 23-year-old Ricardo turned himself in to the Primera police on Tuesday.

      Lozoya already had two outstanding warrants for failure to appear in court on assault family violence and marijuana cases.

      Anyone with information about Ruben Lozoya TMs whereabouts is asked to contact the Primera Police Department Crime Stoppers at (956) 536-0776.
