Kyon Arshawnton Mitchell
A 42-year-old Rosenberg man has been arrested and charged with the hit-and-run death of a woman last week, authorities reported.
Kyron Arshawnton Mitchell was charged with aggravated assault involving family violence, a first-degree felony punishable by up to life in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Mitchell was also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, the Richmond Police Department reported.
Investigators said the fatal attack occurred around 11 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 5, when a Rosenberg woman was run over and killed in the 800 block of Preston Street in Richmond following an accident where she was run off the road.
The victim, identified as Patti Ann Pollard, 40, had been involved in an altercation with the Mitchell near the 140 block of Collins Road in Richmond shortly before the assault occurred, police reported.
“A short time later, the victim was driving in the 800 block of Preston Street when she was run off the road by the suspect,” investigators said. “The victim then got out of her car and began walking down Preston Street when the suspect returned and ran the victim over with a truck he had taken from 140 Collins.”
Pollard was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mitchell went to the Richmond Police Department and told officers he was involved in an accident, police said.
Witness statements and other investigative information ultimately led officers to arrest and charge Mitchell with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault (involving) family violence, police reported.
Mitchell was transported to the Fort Bend County jail.
This case is still under investigation and more details regarding the incident will be forthcoming.
