The owner of City Barber Shop, located at 303 E. Main Street, was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon when he allegedly pulled a gun on his wife and then himself after confronting her about some numbers he said he found on her cell phone.
According to the police report, at 4:28 p.m. the victim, 20-year-old Rita May Trevino, entered the Alice Police Department and reported an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
She told police that at about 11:30 a.m., her husband Jon Lee Tyrone, 34, went by her place of employment, the Taqueria Jalisco located at 1305 E. Main Street, and confronted her at the drive-thru about phone numbers he found on her cell phone.
Trevino told Cpl. Michael Hinojosa that Tyrone "started calling her a liar in front of her coworkers and making a scene." According to the report, Tyrone then pulled up to the west side door and confronted her inside the business. Trevino stated Tyrone told her in front of everyone to "Wait 'til you get home, I'm going to kick your (expletive)."
Trevino told police that she arrived home at about 2:30 p.m. and told her boys to wait outside. She said Tyrone asked who she was talking to, and when she replied nobody he then opened a dresser drawer and pulled out a handgun.
According to the report, Trevino stated Tyrone put the gun to her head and ordered her to tell him who she had been talking to, otherwise he was going to "pull the trigger."
Trevino told police Tyrone then put the gun to his own head and asked her, "Is this what you want; you want me dead?"
Trevino stated she then hit the gun out of her husband's hand, but Tyrone pulled out another handgun from underneath the mattress and left the house. Trevino told police Tyrone's vehicle was at his barber shop, but he was not answering the phone and she was worried.
Hinojosa and Officer Hector Perez contacted Tyrone at the City Barber Shop. According to the report, Tyrone told the officers he was upset because his wife had been lying to him and he "just got mad."
Perez asked Tyrone if he had any weapons with him. According to the report, Tyrone stated he had one inside his shop.
Tyrone was placed under arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, family violence. Perez collected Tyrone's handgun, a Hi-Point ACP Model 3380, and logged it into evidence for safekeeping.
Trevino then brought over the handgun also allegedly used in the assault, a Star Inter Arms 9mm with an empty clip, which was also logged into evidence. Tyrone was then transported to the Jim Wells County jail.
