Woman jailed for assaulting son, deputy

Silvia Morales Garza, 37, of Knippa, was arrested Friday for allegedly injuring her son, assaulting a deputy, interfering with an emergency request for assistance and resisting arrest.

Just before 2 p.m., Garza’s young son phoned 911 to inform authorities that his parents were arguing and that his mother is known to become violent. The child locked himself inside a bathroom to make the call but could not give an exact address.

“He just said Second Street,” said Johnny Joe Vera, a sergeant with the Uvalde County Sheriff’s Office. “Deputies Max Dorflinger and Joaquin Ibarra arrived in the area and started asking people in the area if they heard any noises or signs of a disturbance.”

A man directed deputies to 120 Second St. where they found the child. According to the department, Garza found her son on the phone with dispatchers and assaulted him. The child was not seriously injured and did not require medical treatment.
