GEORGETOWN, Texas — A 22-year-old Georgetown man is jailed Monday after he allegedly choked his ex-girlfriend and held a knife to her throat as she was driving with their 3-month-old son in the backseat.

Gabriel Melant was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon and endangering a child.

The incident reportedly occurred Thursday when the woman said Melant had called to apologize for verbally abusing her Wednesday and asked to see their son, according to the document.

The victim reportedly told police Melant had been released from prison on parole the week before the incident.

The victim reportedly picked up Melant in her car with their son in the backseat and began driving to her home.

While driving, Melant reportedly threw her phone at her, hit her in the leg and began to strangle her as she was on University Avenue approaching the intersection with the Southeast Loop.

The woman said she was swerving as she was fighting off Melant and that other vehicles on the road were honking at her as she struggled to avoid hitting them, according to the affidavit.

The affidavit said Melant then pulled out a large kitchen knife as soon as he stopped strangling the victim and placed it against her throat.

Melant allegedly told her she deserved to die and that he was going to kill her, according to the document.

The victim reportedly got to her house, where Melant got out of her car and allowed the victim to call his mother to come pick him up.

After Melant left, he allegedly sent the victim messages telling her not to call police, the affidavit said.

Police reportedly noticed bruising on the victim’s arm and leg and on the sides of her neck.

Authorities reportedly arrested Melant, who said he only got into a verbal argument with the victim. He was being held in the Williamson County Jail with bail set at $250,000.
