A Wimberley man was arrested early Sunday morning after brutally assaulting an acquaintance in an incident that took place in February.
According to Hays County records, the Hays County Sheriff’s Office arrested Kyle London, 22, of Wimberley, who was charged with aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, which is a second-degree felony.
London was booked into the Hays County Jail Sunday and was released the same day on $10,000 bond.
According to a Hays County arrest affidavit, London and his friend, Austin Smith, were attending a party on February 13 when a verbal argument between the two escalated into a physical altercation.
The two men were quickly on the floor, where London gained the high ground. Witnesses claimed that London repeatedly hit Smith in the face and head with closed fists.
Witnesses also said that London continued to hit Smith until he was physically pulled off of Smith. According to London’s arresting affidavit, Smith was delirious and unable to defend himself.
According to the arresting affidavit, “Smith suffered ‘fractures of the orbital floor and wall’ as a result of the hitting to the face that required medical attention and surgery.”
A court date has not been released on the case.
