SMPD Involved in Two SWAT Situations Tuesday Night

Jorge Enriquez

Police Searching for Man Who Evaded Arrest on Bracewood Circle

San Marcos Police are searching for a man who was involved in a road rage incident in downtown San Marcos, and later ran from police.

On June 26, SMPD received a call regarding a road rage incident that occurred in the downtown area. In that incident, police say Jorge Enriquez (10/16/1985) intentionally used his vehicle to block in another vehicle. He then threw a beer can at the driver’s side window of the vehicle and attacked the driver, causing injury. As the victim attempted to drive away, Enriquez used his vehicle to ram the victim’s vehicle.

On Tuesday, August 27, SMPD detectives obtained an arrest warrant on Enriquez for aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. The warrant was issued in relation to the road rage incident that occurred in June. At approximately 5:58 p.m., SMPD detectives observed Enriquez driving to his residence in the 700 block of Bracewood Circle and attempted to contact him.

Enriquez parked his vehicle, ran into his apartment, and barricaded himself inside. Detectives notified the Hays County SWAT team at that time and requested their assistance.

At this time, the whereabouts of Enriquez are unknown. He is considered violent, and any person with information about Enriquez is asked to contact SMPD Detective Patrick Aubry at 512.753.2306 or by email at
