Weatherford man accused of assaulting elderly relative

Johnson County sheriff's deputies arrested a Weatherford man early Wednesday morning who was wanted on two felony warrants of injury to an elderly family member and interfering with an emergency call.

Randy White was arrested near Burleson while on his way to a friend's home, said Weatherford police Detective Wendy Field.

White was transferred to the Parker County Jail, where he remains with bail set at $125,000, Field said.

White is accused of assaulting an elderly relative and the person's caregiver, Field said.

The relative suffered bruises and a deep laceration to the back of the head, Field said.

White is also accused of interfering with an emergency call by taking the caregiver's cellphone so that she could not call police. The caregiver went to a neighbor's home to call police.
