      Man attacks woman with a cable box

      Harlingen Police Department: Ruben Ybarra, Jr.

      A family dispute leads to a man assaulting a woman with a cable box.

      The unidentified victim called police to the 2200 block of East Grimes Avenue in Harlingen Thursday after an argument with her daughter's common-in-law husband, Ruben Ybarra, Jr, spun out of control.

      The 41-year old woman told police Ybarra began pushing her around and then struck her in the stomach with a cable box several times.

      Ybarra is also accused of threatening police and shoving an officer when he arrived on scene.

      Ybarra was arrested and charged with assault/family violence and resisting arrest.

      His bonds totaled $7,000.
