RED OAK

Red Oak Police arrested Dean Carlo Ferrazzoli, 25, after he allegedly assaulted his neighbor and discharged a firearm last Thursday.

Police officers were dispatched at 8:42 p.m. in the 100 block of Stainback Court.

Red Oak Police Lt. Marc Schroder stated when officers arrived on scene they found a person holding his eye, stating he needed an ambulance because he was in pain. Officers reported the victim’s eye was red and blue.

“The reporting person stated that he had been assaulted by his neighbor and wanted to press charges,” Schroder said.

At the time of the incident, the victim told police he was walking down the fence line separating his father's property from Farrazzoli's because his father was flying a drone at the rear of the residence.

Schroder stated Ferrazzoli came out of his home and ordered them to get off of his property. He allegedly fired a warning shot into the ground and then pointed the firearm at them.

“The neighbor allegedly continued pointing the gun at the reporting person and allegedly fired another round as he was ordering the reporting person off of the property,” Schroder stated. “The reporting person stated that he continued towards his father at the rear of the residence as the neighbor allegedly continued to point the firearm at him and allegedly threatened to shoot him.”

Schroder stated the neighbor threw the gun down, ran at the victim and hit him five times in the head and face. A witness at the scene corroborated the reporting person’s allegations.

Police arrested Ferrazzoli at 9:01 p.m. Thursday and booked him into the Red Oak City jail. Ferrazzoli later admitted to police that he discharged a round into the ground, ran towards the victim and punched him in the face. He is charged with assault that causes bodily injury and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Ferrazzoli was transferred to the Wayne McCollum Detention Center in Waxahachie. He was booked in at 8:02 a.m. Saturday and has bonds totaling $205,000.

Ferrazzoli remained in custody at the detention center as of press time Tuesday.
