Deputies said a teen and his father used rocks to assault a man over the weekend at a convenience store west of Lincolnton.
Esteban Cavillo Pascual, 46, of 133 Charles Heavner Lane, is accused of using a “large rock” Sunday to punch and hit a man outside Bob’s Superette on N.C. 27 West, according to a Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office report.
The incident took place around 4 p.m., deputies said.
At the time, Jesse Mace and his wife were on their way to visit family, they told officers, when they stopped at the local convenience store, where a nearby teen started throwing rocks at their vehicle from his residence.
The teen, later identified as Pascual’s 17-year-old son Esteban Calvillo Estrada, also of 133 Charles Heavner Lane, engaged in a verbal argument with Mace, the victim told deputies.
It was during the altercation that Pascual and several other individuals exited the area home and approached the convenience store parking lot, Mace told officers.
Vanessa Estrada Calvillo, also 17 and a relative of the two other suspects, threatened Mace’s wife and tried unsuccessfully to get into the couple’s vehicle, deputies said.
Calvillo, Estrada and Pascual were all arrested in the incident.
Calvillo was charged with one count of communicating threats and has since been released from custody.
Both father and son, each charged with one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, remain behind bars — Estrada under a $21,000 secured bond and Pascual under a $21,500 secured bond, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Estrada faces an additional misdemeanor charge for simple assault; Pascual faces additional misdemeanor counts for assault with a deadly weapon and injury to personal property.
Deputies estimated the victims’ vehicle damage to be around $300.
