A woman assaulted her common-law husband when he did not respond after she asked him if she was pretty, according Laredo police.
Laredo police officers were dispatched to an assault report at about 11:10 p.m. Tuesday in the 6400 block of Casa Del Sol Boulevard. Officers arrived and met with a woman identified as Lizeth Guadalupe Ramirez, 20.
She stated that her common-law husband had assaulted her and attempted to strangle her. Authorities then spoke to the male, who had a different version of what happened.
He stated he and Ramirez were at the movies when Ramirez asked him if she looked pretty. He did not respond because he could not hear her, according to police. This allegedly caused Ramirez to get agitated.
To avoid the confrontation, the couple went home. He stated Ramirez hit him several time as he was driving home. The assault continued once the couple arrived home.
There, Ramirez allegedly pushed and struck the male. A relative tried to separate them but got assaulted by Ramirez, according to police. Ramirez was arrested and charged with two counts of assault, family violence.
