Rural Texico Man Charged With Sex Assault and Unlawful Restraint

May 31, 2017

A 42-year-old rural Texico man has been arrested in connection with the sexual assault of a woman he reportedly held against her will on Saturday for six to eight hours before she was able to escape to a neighbors home for help.

Ronnie Starr of the Harmony Road is being held in the Jefferson County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond for aggravated domestic battery, aggravated criminal sexual assault and unlawful restraint.

Jefferson County Chief Deputy Clint Taylor says a search warrant was executed on Starr’s home on Saturday to confirm the alleged victim’s story. Starr and the woman had been involved in a dating relationship. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Starr was not located until just before midnight Saturday night when he was taken into custody.
