WACO (July 29, 2013)--A Waco man was held in the McLennan County Jail Monday after police arrested in connection with an attack on a 68-year-old woman.

Ronald Lee Johnson, 28, was ordered held in lieu of $5,000 bond charged with injury to an elderly individual, the online jail log showed.

Waco police Sgt. W Patrick Swanton said Johnson was arrested Saturday after police were flagged down in the 3800 block of Colcord Ave., by a driver who was honking her car horn to get the officers’ attention.
