GATESVILLE (March 6, 2013)—A Mound man was named in an indictment Tuesday charging him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after a pawn shop employee reported he was attacked with a knife.

Clinton Eugene Reid, 36, of Mound, was arrested Dec. 10, 2012 but later posted a $20,000 bond and was released from the Coryell County Jail.

Gatesville police Chief Nathan Gohlke said officers were sent just before 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 10, 2012 to a pawn shop in the 100 block of North Lutterloh Avenue where an employee reported he had been assaulted with a knife.

As officers arrived at the store they stopped a man was leaving who fit the description of the man who the clerk said assaulted him.

The police report says a man came into the store to pay for and pick up some firearms that had been pawned.

When the clerk explained the store had put a hold on the items the customer became angry, grabbed a large folding knife and reached across the counter to threaten the employee.

The employee was not injured, Gohlke said.
