A guilty plea on an assault charge has landed a Navasota man in prison.
Alfonso Solis still faces charges in Brazos County for the November 2014 incident, but got a 15-year sentence in Grimes County for two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
Authorities believe Solis punched his girlfriend and kicked her out of a car along Highway 6 in College Station. After walking in the rain shoe-less to a nearby home, the woman eventually got a ride back to the couple's Navasota home.
Once she returned, Solis allegedly attacked the girlfriend with a golf club on the lower half of her body after she threatened to leave with the couple's child. The club's shaft was bent in half, according to the Grimes County District Attorney's Office. When the girlfriend tried to leave, Solis held a knife to her throat, but she escaped to her mother's house and called police.
Authorities say when they arrived, Solis wrestled with them before he was arrested.
Prosecutors say they were ready to show a history of violence by Solis before he pleaded guilty.
"Unfortunately, this was a typical family violence case in that the victim rarely notified law enforcement of the acts of violence by Solis," said Assistant District Attorney Jo Ann Linzer.
