ODESSA, TX (Local Big 2 News) - Two men face assault charges after police say they tracked down a tow truck driver and punched him until he released a recently towed vehicle to them, according to police.


Keith Muldrew, 21, and Kerry Muldrew, 50, both face a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to police.

Officers on Sunday responded to the 4100 block of West 42nd Street after dispatch said that two people were reportedly assaulting a two truck driver with a crow bar. Police conducted an investigation that revealed details that led up to the incident.


A tow-truck driver for "ARS" towed a tan Chevrolet Suburban near East 52nd Street for being parked in a fire lane, according to police.

Shortly after the vehicle was towed, the driver was forced to stop after being "cut off" by a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, according to a police release. The release goes on to state that two black men got out of the Silverado, and one of them broke the driver's side window of the tow truck with a wrench while the other man punched the driver in the jaw with a "closed fist".

The driver tells police he was "in fear for his life" and then released the Suburban to the men who immediately drove off.

About 10 minutes later, police caught up to the suspects. The victim identified both men to police, who arrested the pair, according to the release.
