According to San Antonio police, 24-year-old Andrew Alexander Pantaleon
has since been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Officer Corey Schuler told the daily that Pantaleon turned himself in around 5 p.m. and was taken to Public Safety Headquarters for questioning.

of two persons of interest last Thursday. Schuler told the Express-News

The victim survived her injuries, but is still recovering.
Schuler also told the Express-News

“It could’ve just been a random act of evil,” the officer said.
