SAN ANGELO – A San Angelo man was indicted by a Tom Green County grand jury in August for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after ramming his vehicle intentionally into another.
According to court documents, a San Angelo police officer responded to the 2100 block of Field Street in reference to a domestic dispute. Upon arrival, the officer made contact with the victims who advised they had been in a motor vehicle collision. The officer also learned that the act was believed to be intentional.
Investigators responded to the location and conducted an interview with the victims. The victims said they were traveling together in their vehicle when they came into contact with the defendant, identified as Monte Jarmon, in a black Acura passenger car. The victims stated that Jarmon allegedly flagged the down and requested to speak with them.
The victims parked their vehicle in a nearby location and met Jarmon. Then, Jarmon exited his vehicle and allegedly attempted to pry open the victim’s passenger door. His demeanor caused both the victims to believe he intended to assault them, and they drove off.
The victims driving off allegedly started a chase between them and Jarmon. At the 2100 block of Field Street, the victim lost sight of Jarmon as they continued to flee. Then, at the 1900 block of Childress Street, Jarmon allegedly rammed the victim’s vehicle with his own. This caused the victim’s vehicle to spin in a complete circle and it caused significant damage. Both victims feared Jarmon would do serious harm and despite the damage to their vehicle, they continued to flee.
The victim eventually ended up back at the 2100 block of Field Street and Jarmon allegedly fled after he was informed the police were contacted.
After, investigators responded to the 1500 block of Greenwood Street where officers located the suspect’s vehicle that had been abandoned in a private driveway. There, the investigators spoke with a woman who lived in an adjacent home and claimed to know Jarmon.
She said Jarmon was at her home prior to polices arrival and she agreed to take Jarmon with her as she conducted her own errands. While doing so, Jarmon allegedly left the vehicle and departed on foot to an unknown location. The woman claimed she did not know about the incident that had taken place.
Investigators inspected the suspect’s vehicle and noted it was a black Acura passenger car as described by the victims and observed damage to the right portion of the vehicle’s front bumper and to the right front panel. The damage was consistent with the damage done to the victim’s vehicle.
Jarmon was arrested on July 14, 2022 after he allegedly evaded arrest from an officer who mad a face-to-face recognition of Jarmon and know him to have a warrant. According to the arrest report, the officer activated his emergency lights while operating a marked patrol unit. Jarmon allegedly observed the officer’s emergency lights and began to run away from the patrol unit. At West 18th Street and North Bryant, Jarmon was taken into custody without incident.
Jarmon was indicted in September by a Tom Green County grand jury for evading arrest. He is currently an inmate at the Tom Green County Detention Facility being held on $50,000 bond.
