UPDATE: The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force says Jesus Gonzalez was arrested Thursday, Nov. 30, by the Travis County Sheriff’s Office at CMC Recycling where he was known to sell scrap metal.



Jesus “Chuy” Gonzalez, 45, has been arrested nine times and convicted six.

“Those arrests pertain back to 1989, where we have a burglary, we have a robbery, narcotics use, as well as assault family violence,” said Depty U.S. Marshal Brandon Filla.

Gonzalez had a protective order against him earlier this year

“That is just to give the victim some type of safety net to where this individual can’t come into contact with her on any type of occasion, nor come into contact with her within 200 feet,” said Filla.

But authorities say he did just that twice – assaulting the woman.

“They’ve been told they can’t come in contact and they keep going beyond that point of that 200 feet guideline, and then assaulting this victim. That’s how we look at it, is someone with stalker characteristics,” said Filla.

Gonzalez has multiple tattoos on his arms and chest. He’s 5’9 and weighs 230 lbs., and authorities believe he is somewhere in the Austin or Round Rock area.
