A Texas man was arrested this week after a woman found him naked in bed with her son, then the mother ran him over with her vehicle. Delmer Orlando Ortiz Licona, 29, is facing charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child for the incident in August 2021.
Local news station Everything Lubbock reports that a woman called 9-1-1 around 1 a.m. on August 8 in a panic. She told the dispatcher that she had just found her boyfriend in bed with her 7 year old son. When the anonymous woman heard the operator pick up, she started yelling:
“What are you doing to her?!”
He then told the dispatcher why he needed an officer at his house.
“I just found my man, uh, who lives with me, naked in bed with my daughter.” She continues, “Please hurry up, he’s running away, please hurry up.”
When the dispatcher asked, “And is he your boyfriend?” The woman replied:
It’s supposed to be, but hurry up or I’ll kill him. I’m going to fucking kill him. Please hurry, please hurry. I’m setting him up to kill him, please hurry, please hurry, please fucking quick. He is jumping the fence. He’s fucking jumping the fence. Hurry.”
Boyfriend ran, mom hit him with car during 9-1-1 call
While still on the phone with the dispatcher, things escalated further after the woman threatened to kill Licona. She got into her car and started following him, then all of a sudden the operator heard a “knock” on the other end of the line.
It’s in the alley. It was just put in front of my car. He just got in front of my car, sir,” she replied. “Did you hit him with the car?” the operator asked.
“Yeah, he jumped right in front of my car. She jumped right in front of my car, sir.
She told 9-1-1 that she was fine and was still moving. Police said that when officers arrived, Licona was no longer at the scene. In March, police conducted a forensic interview with the daughter, and the primary school-age girl described the sexual abuse in detail.
Finally, in April, the police located the (ex) boyfriend and tried to interview him about the sexual abuse investigation. He told an investigator that he did nothing wrong and that he was innocent during a phone call. Police reports show that he repeatedly refused to attend scheduled meetings with the investigator, so the case was submitted to the criminal district attorney’s office.
On May 3, 2022, Licona was booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center after a warrant for her arrest was issued. He is being held without bail on a detention order from immigration customs authorities.
