San Marcos Police arrested an individual Dec. 10 on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, evading arrest and tampering with evidence.

Police say at approximately 12:30 p.m., they responded to the 200 block of Armstrong for a reported aggravated assault. Police say the victim informed them that a young male pointed a handgun at the victim after he was confronted about walking in his yard. 

Police say the male subject, Jason Jordan Trevino, ran from them while a female he was accompanied by stayed on the scene. Officers set a perimeter and searched the area for the subject. 

During the ongoing search, police say a citizen called SMPD to report Trevino stole his bike. Police say the citizen reported Trevino ran toward a bus station in the area. 

Officers continued searching the area for the subject and say they located him near Gravel and Jackman Streets. Officers say Trevino ran south from Gravel Street across the woods and railroad tracks and on Grove Street where additional officers were there to take him into custody. 

Police say the subject was not in possession of a handgun while taken into custody, and it is believed the gun was left in the wooded area. The Hays County K9 Unit assisted with the firearm search but it was not located.  

Police say Trevino was booked into Hays County Jail and remains in jail pending bond.
