A 77-year-old Robinson man hit another man with a baseball bat Wednesday, about a month after he threatened a woman in the same home with a knife and hit her, Robinson Police Chief Phillip Prasifka said.

Victor Frank Fuentes Jr. was arrested Wednesday after police were called to a home in the 100 block of Hillside Drive shortly before 10 p.m. Police found Fuentes at the door to a bathroom where a 47-year-old man was hiding, Prasifka said.

Officers determined Fuentes had hit the man in the left arm with the bat before the man was able to lock himself in the bathroom, he said. The man told officers he feared for his safety as Fuentes continued to threaten him, Prasifka said.

Fuentes had been arrested in late October, accused of threatening a woman with a knife and hitting her several times in the face, Prasifka said. A protective order was issued for the residents of the home, prohibiting Fuentes from being there.

Police arrested Fuentes on a first-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and violation of a protective order in the attack with the baseball bat. His bond for the previous second-degree felony assault with a deadly weapon charge was also revoked.

He was booked into McLennan County Jail and remained there Thursday with bond listed at $70,000.
