WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A Wichita Falls man with prior convictions for assault causing injury to a family member is back in jail after police said he punched his two sisters and his mother in the face when he couldn’t find his phone.

Darrion Newsome, 33, is charged with three counts of assault family violence.

Newsome is jailed on bonds totaling $30,000.

Officers responded to a call regarding a disturbance at 8:15 p.m. on Tuesday, March 10 in the 900 block of Airport Road.

Police said the victims were Newsome’s two sisters and his mother.

When officers arrived on scene, they spoke with the victims, who all claimed they felt pain.

According to authorities, the victims said Newsome became agitated when he was unable to locate his phone.

According to the affidavit, Newsome punched his sister in the face, knocking her to the ground, when she tried to help him.

Police said the victims told them a second sister tried to stop Newsome from assaulting his sister, only to be assaulted herself.

Officers said Newsome’s mother came outside of the apartment to the parking lot and told Newsome to stop.

According to authorities, Newsome then approached his mother and punched her in the face.

Newsome has two arrests, with two charges of assault causing injury to a family member in 2018 and a theft charge in 2019.

Because of his prior convictions, his charges were enhanced to felony charges.

On April 1, 2018, Newsome was arrested on two counts of assault causing injury to a family member.

According to that arrest affidavit, Newsome began screaming and cursing at his sister after she asked him to take a shower before they went to their relatives to celebrate Easter.

Newsome then began to punch the victim in the face and abdomen with a closed fist.

When police questioned Newsome, he was incoherent, according to the affidavit.

In August of 2019, Newsome was arrested and charged with theft after he stole a bicycle and attempted to sell it back to the person he stole it from.
