From the Rusk County Sheriff's Department:

LANEVILLE - Saturday morning, the Rusk County Sheriff’s Office got an aggravated assault call at a house on County Road 4170 South in Laneville.

Deputies found a 63-year-old woman who had been assaulted in her home. The woman was severely beaten and later admitted to a local hospital because of the injuries she sustained from the assault. She told deputies her estranged husband attacked her, gathered some of his belongings-- including a gun-- and left the house. The suspect, 68-year-old Ernest Maynard Brinkmann, drove away in a 2010 Red Jeep Cherokee Laredo, with the Texas License Plate BG5 J079.

Investigators have gotten a warrant for Brinkmann’s arrest. They say he may have a gun and is considered dangerous. If you see him, please call authorities right away.
