One woman was arrested and her accomplice is being sought by Robinson police in connection with the alleged assault of a 21-year-old man and burglary of his home earlier this month, Robinson Police Chief Phillip Prasifka said.

Tiffany Rose Munoz, 28, of Beverly Hills, was arrested after Robinson police were called to a home in the 100 block of Darden Drive at about 3 a.m. on Dec. 3. Prasifka said a 21-year-old man, who was previously in a relationship with Munoz, said he was assaulted by two women who broke into his home early that morning.

The man said Munoz and her accomplice repeatedly punched and hit him in the head and body, Prasifka said. The accomplice also hit the man with a whiskey bottle and Munoz bit him at least twice. 

The women were not at the home when police arrived and began their investigation. Police discovered threatening text messages had been sent to the man and another person inside the home prior to the Dec. 3 incident, Prasifka said.

Police issued warrants charging each woman with second-degree felony burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit assault. Deputies with the McLennan County Sheriff's Office located Munoz and arrested her on the warrant and took her to McLennan County Jail, where she remained Thursday with a bond listed at $25,000.

Prasifka said Munoz's accomplice had not been arrested by Thursday afternoon and the investigation remained ongoing.
