Coryell Co. man held for sexual assault of disabled man

by Patrick Tolbert

GATESVILLE - A 22-year-old man was taken into police custody after being released from the hospital for a self-inflicted wound to the neck.

Coryell County deputies report Christopher Lace Mobley was suspect in the sexual assault of a mentally disabled person.

On June 19, deputies went to an address in Gatesville where they believed Mobley was staying. When they arrived, a man standing in the front yard identified himself to deputies as Chris Mobley. The man went back into the house as investigators waited for backup to arrive.

A woman, described by deputies as Mobley's aunt, exited the house asking them what they needed. A deputy informed her that they had warrants for Mobley's arrest and asked where he went. She told deputies he went to the bathroom.

Officers went into the home and found the bathroom door wide open. They searched the house for him and found him in the laundry room bleeding from the neck.

Deputies say he stood up and still had a knife lodged in his neck.

Mobley was flown to Scott & White Hospital in Temple where he was hospitalized until Saturday. He was arrested upon his release from the hospital. He was held in the Bell County Jail awaiting transport to Coryell County.

He is charged with four counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault and is being held on $300,000 bond.
