Man indicted for baby shower attack


A Bell County Grand Jury has returned an indictment against a man for making violent threats when a baby shower lasted longer than he thought it should.

Raymond Allen Strange was charged with aggravated assault threatening bodily injury with a deadly weapon.

Harker Heights police had arrested strange after they responded to a call at a residence in the 1800 block of McGinnis Court on Sunday, October 21 regarding a man with a gun.

Officers learned that a woman in the house had been having a baby shower with a man in the house previously saying she could have the shower but it should be ended by 7:00 p.m. at which time he would return.

Witnesses told police that he came back about 7:30 p.m. but the shower was not over.

Police say the woman met with the man in another room of the house and apologized for the party running long, but he became angry and said that everyone had to leave.

Police say he then grabbed a handgun, loaded it an pointed it at the woman’s head, with officers told the barrel of the weapon actually was touching her between the eyes.

The suspect was later identified as Raymond Strange and police took him into custody.
