The woman was heard screaming loudly as she looked over her shoulder several times before cutting across the park.

According to court documents, Garcia didn’t stop pursuing the woman until she reached a fence. The woman was not injured during the incident.

Court documents also revealed that Garcia was on deferred adjudication for assault on a family member against the woman in July of last year after he allegedly kicked her in the face and body. The woman allegedly told authorities at the time that Garcia did not kick her and that her injuries were due to her “falling face-first into a coffee table.”

An emergency protection order was issued against Garcia on March 21.
