SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — A 36-year-old man faces kidnapping and attempted capital murder charges after his victim drove to the San Marco Police Department seeking protection.

According to an arrest affidavit, on Tuesday, Cameron Mitchell Moore was following his common-law wife when she called police and began driving toward the police station. She made it to the parking lot next door and began screaming, prompting officers inside the police department to run outside.

“Officers exited the police department’s main doors to find Moore on top of the victim with Moore’s hands placed near the victim’s neck and throat,” the affidavit reads.

Officers ordered the man to stop and arrested him without incident. Officers found a large black zip tie in the pocket of the suspect’s hoodie large enough to fit around someone’s hands.

In the affidavit for Moore’s arrest, police write their department has records of other acts Moore committed that he knew the victim would find threatening.

The victim had an emergency protective order against Moore.

Moore faces a kidnapping charge as well as attempted capital murder because he attempted to kill the victim during the course of the kidnapping. Moore is also charged with stalking and violation of an emergency protective order. He is currently in the Hays County Jail with a bond set at $260,000. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
