A Laredo woman assaulted her common-law husband when he did not respond after she asked him if she was pretty, according to Laredo police.

The Laredo Morning Times reports that Laredo police officers were dispatched to an assault report at about 11:10 p.m. Tuesday to a home in an east Laredo neighborhood.

Officers arrived and met with a woman identified as Lizeth Guadalupe Ramirez, 20.

She told police that her common-law husband had assaulted her and attempted to strangle her. Authorities then spoke to the male, who told them a different account of the events.

He stated he and Ramirez were attending the movies when Ramirez asked him if she looked pretty.

The man did not respond because he says he could not hear her, according to police. This disconnect allegedly caused Ramirez to get agitated.

To avoid the confrontation, the couple left the theater and went home. He stated Ramirez hit him several times as he was driving home. The assault continued once they arrived back at their residence.

There, Ramirez allegedly pushed and struck the male. A relative attempted to separate them but got assaulted by Ramirez, police told the Times.

Ramirez was arrested and charged with two counts of assault, family violence.
