A man is arrested and accused of punching another man, causing him to have a seizure and brain bleed. 

On September 16, just before 2:00 a.m. officers were dispatched to The Broken Tap on Indiana in downtown Wichita Falls in reference to a man having a seizure. 

The witness said she saw the victim leaving the bar when he was approached and punched by a man she knew as Ray.

The witness said the punch caused the victim to fall backward and hit his head. 

While the victim was on the ground the witness said it appeared he was having a seizure.

During the follow-up investigation, police were informed that the victim had suffered a serious injury as a result of the assault. 

The victim had a bleed on his brain and blood had transferred to his spinal fluid. Doctors also told officers the victim suffered two strokes as a result of the assault.

The victim said he was at the bar with his friends and all he could remember was bumping into someone as he was leaving and that person confronting him. 

The victim said he did not remember being punched. 

Witnesses to the crime corroborated the victim's claim and identified the person who punched the victim as Raymon Herd, 26.

Detectives arrested Herd on Thursday, based on the investigation and corroboration of witness statements and charged him with Aggravated Assault. 

As of Friday evening, he was no longer in the Wichita County Jail.
