Lufkin Police investigating alleged assault involving catfish


Lufkin Police are investigating an alleged assault where a woman said she was slapped with a fish by a family member.

According to Sgt. Mike Shurley, Lufkin police were called out to the 400 block of Davis Street around 2 a.m. Sunday Morning.

"The argument allegedly started because a female put a catfish in her sister-in-law's face," Shurley said. "An argument then ensued between the woman and her brother, which turned physical.  According to the brother, his sister slapped his wife in the face with the fish, and he told her to leave, and eventually she did."

Shurley said that the woman told police that her brother had been beating his wife. Shurley said that the brother claimed any marks his wife had were from her trying to break up the fight.

No arrests were made at the scene.

"Due to lack of independent witnesses and conflicting stories, the case has been forwarded to the Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation," Shurley said.
