A Fort Worth man was charged with as­sault af­ter po­lice say he ran down his ex-girl­friend’s new boyfriend with his truck.

Edgar Reza, 31, was charged Fri­day and booked into Tar­rant County Jail.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, Reza se­ri­ously in­jured a man when he at­tacked him on Dec. 30 at 9:15 p.m.

A woman was stand­ing out­side her house in the 4000 block of Mead­ow­brook Drive in east Fort Worth with her boyfriend that night when Reza, an ex-boyfriend, pulled up in his Dodge Ram pickup and started ar­gu­ing with them.

The boyfriend, who was not iden­ti­fied by po­lice, started walk­ing away from the house be­cause he “didn’t want any­thing to get dam­aged” at his girl­friend’s house, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

The boyfriend walked to­ward the cor­ner of Avalon Court and Mead­ow­brook when he looked back and saw Reza driv­ing straight at him, po­lice said.

Reza, 31, drove onto the side­walk and hit the man with his truck, knock­ing him to the ground, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. He then parked a few feet away and walked back to the man, who was hurt but man­aged to stand up. The boyfriend told po­lice he felt his leg was hurt and could only stand on one foot when Reza started to at­tack him.

Reza punched him in the face un­til he fell to the side­walk, po­lice said.

Reza then got into his truck and drove away.

Po­lice found Reza and his truck shortly after­ward and found he had out­stand­ing war­rants. Reza was ar­rested and, on Fri­day, was charged with ag­gra­vated as­sault with a deadly weapon.

The man he’s ac­cused of at­tack­ing was taken to the hospi­tal. His con­di­tion could not be de­ter­mined.

Reza was pre­vi­ously con­victed three times for as­sault, once for reck­less driv­ing and twice for bur­glary.

In one of the as­sault con­vic­tions, Reza was found guilty of at­tack­ing his ex-girl­friend and her fam­ily in 2007.

It is not clear if the ex-girl­friend in­volved in the 2007 as­sault is the same woman from the 2018 as­sault.

On Thanks­giv­ing in 2007, Reza and three other men showed up at his ex-girl­friend’s house and started a brawl on the front lawn, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments.

Dur­ing the fight, Reza grabbed his ex-girl­friend by the hair and started punch­ing her in the ribs. When his ex-girl­friend’s mother tried to in­ter­fere, Reza tack­led her to the ground and shot her in the side, ac­cord­ing to doc­u­ments.

Reza also stabbed a man in the stom­ach dur­ing the fight, doc­u­ments say.

Reza took a plea deal from the court in De­cem­ber 2008 and was sen­tenced to seven years.

In June 2016, he was ar­rested and even­tu­ally con­victed of bur­glary and sen­tenced to 60 days. On Sept. 20, 2016, he was con­victed for bur­glary of a ve­hi­cle and sen­tenced to 90 days.
