Ellis County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were dispatched at 11:27 p.m. July 27, to Baylor Medical Center at Waxahachie in reference to an assault complaint.

Upon arrival, deputies met with a 49-year-old Waxahachie man who said he had been at a friend’s house in the 500 block of Saralvo Road, Midlothian.
