LAMPASAS (July 31, 2012)--Lampasas County sheriff’s deputies have made an arrest in an attack that left another man with what authorities said was a severe neck laceration.

Just before 12:30 a.m. Thursday, the sheriff’s office received a 911 call reporting that the 20-year-old victim had been attacked, Lampasas County Sheriff David Whitis said Tuesday.

Deputies were sent to a residence on County Road 3082 where they found the injured victim, who was flown to Scott & White Hospital in Temple while investigators scoured the scene for evidence.

His name and information about his condition wasn't released Tuesday.

A crime scene search, that included a tracking dog, was conducted in a wooded area near the residence and DPS responded with a helicopter, the sheriff's department said.

Deputies concluded their search Thursday, after determining that the attacker had left the immediate area.

The man deputies were seeking later turned up at Metroplex Hospital in Killeen seeking treatment for injuries sustained during the attack, Whitis said.

Killeen police arrested David Roush, Jr., 27, at the hospital on Saturday.

Roush was charged with aggravated assault in connection with the attack.

He has since been released from the hospital and remained in the Lampasas County Jail Tuesday in lieu of $250,000 bond.
