AUSTIN (KXAN) A knife-wielding suspect allegedly chased a man after he inappropriately touched his girlfriend at Garrison Park, court documents said. Officers responded to the park located at 6001 Manchaca Road right next to Crockett High School in south Austin last Tuesday after a caller said a man with a knife was chasing his friend.
When officers arrived, the victim told them he got a text from his girlfriend that said a strange guy touched her inappropriately while at the park. He went to the park immediately and confronted who police identified as 53-year-old Robert Lopez. At first, the victim said he told Lopez to leave and he started to walk off, but then he approached him and took out a knife. Lopez then allegedly said, "I'm going to ---- y'all up!" The victim told police that after he said that, he started chasing him, but the victim was able to get away and left. Lopez was described as having a skull tattoo on his forearm and playboy bunny tattoo on his hand, and an AISD officer later found Lopez at the park with a knife on him.
He is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Austin gave him sanctuary. She needs to not be puritanical and her friend needs to learn to share. #SanFranValues
This is a horrifically written article. The guy was arrested with a knife on him, the article says he chased the guy will having a knife on him. He didnt say that he had a knife out and threatened him. Having a knife is not illegal. Now, threatening the guy may simply be blowing off anger, may be a threat. But did he act on it, no. I guess one could argue that this was after the attack on his girlfriend, not during the attack, so it would become a question of whether that was acceptable or not. Seems like the guy should get off with a warning about how to better handle this in the future. Now the guy who assaulted his girlfriend, should be in jail, really long time.
Touching?......there’s got to be more
A pat on the head is a lot different than squeeze in some other location.
Keep Austin weird maaann!
Theyve brought this on themselves.
The guy who did the touching pulled a knife and chased the boyfriend who confronted him about inappropriately touching the boyfriend’s woman. I know Democrats can’t write a story unless it fits their narrative, but I decoded it for you.

Oh, he’s just doing the Jim Accosting that Americans refuse to do. /W
He did it out of love! /Jeb!
Where’s Dirty Harry when we need him?
Austin Snowflake running from the knife-wielding man. lol.
Okay, I will need to reread. Thanks.
No biggie. It was so poorly written that it took extra mental effort to decode it. Tired now. Out....
“This is a horrifically written article.”
Yes, it’s pathetic. There are apparently no editors anymore and English must be a second language to most of the reporters,
Did Chelsea Moreno pass high school english composition?
If so, her teacher should be retroactively fired.
The only thing we know is that ‘he’ did this and said that.
Chelsea Moreno is a Senior at the University of Texas at Austin and is graduating
this May. She is a journalism major and is pursuing a career in TV reporting and
producing, while earning a certificate in Latino Media Studies.
She is currently the Director of the News Department at Texas Student Television,
the only FCC licensed, student-run station in the country. She is responsible for
the news shows, Good Morning Texas, KVR News and a newly relaunched political
talk show called Tower Talks. She has previously held several producer positions
for Good Morning Texas.
He should have been prepared to go Indiana Jones on him.
Yes, the boyfriend should have been prepared to handle the situation when he confronted the man with Russian hands, and Roman fingers...and a blade. Ms Moreno, if you ever need help learning to write, try to find me.
I had to read it about 3 times to decipher what they were writing.
In all seriousness, one of my Martial Arts teachers said that if somebody comes at you with a knife, run. Just keep away from the person and try to put whatever you can between yourself and him.
Another one said that if you get into a knife fight, you ARE going to get cut. This isn’t a Steven Segal movie.
