Man points gun at girlfriend’s face when baby shower runs late: police

Raymond Allen Strange

HARKER HEIGHTS, Texas — A Central Texas man has been arrested after police say he pointed a loaded gun at his pregnant girlfriend when her baby shower at their home went longer than planned.

Bell County Jail records show 42-year-old Raymond Allen Strange of Harker Heights was jailed Tuesday on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Online records listed no attorney for Strange, whose bond was $100,000.

Police in Harker Heights, 60 miles (97 kilometers) north of Austin, responded to a report of a man with a gun threatening a woman.

Police say Strange was upset that the shower was supposed to end at 7 p.m. Sunday but was still going on when he arrived at 7:30 p.m.

Police say the girlfriend apologized to Strange before he told everyone to leave and pointed a gun at her face.
