WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

According to the Wichita Falls Police Department, a 19-year-old was arrested on Tuesday night for aggravated assault following a disturbance where he ended up being knocked unconscious. 

Around 9:30 p.m. officers were dispatched to the 200 block of Lancer Circle. When they arrived on the scene, the victim and witnesses said Javier Castro, 19, had barged into the home.

The witnesses and victim said Castro was known to them and the victim asked Castro, "Can you at least knock?" after he barged into the residence. 

That is when, according to police, Castro yelled at the victim to join him outside to fight. The victim told Castro he did not want to fight him. 

Castro went onto the porch of the home and into the yard continuing to demand the victim fight him. At this point, the victim and witnesses were on the porch of the home.

Police said Castro is accused of then picking up a 2x4 with nails sticking out and throwing it at the victim. The victim ducked to avoid being hit and during this time Castro is alleged to have charged at the victim and assaulting him. 

The victim ended up knocking Castro unconscious during the altercation, according to police. The victim had visible scratches on his face. Castro told officers he could not remember what happened. 

Castro was arrested and booked into the Wichita Co. Jail for aggravated assault. As of early Wednesday, a bond had not yet been set.
