Texas Man Allegedly Shot Women In Cars Because They Should 'Birth Male Babies,' Not Drive
Nicholas D'Agostino has a "dim" view of women, police said.
A Texas man shot at woman in cars because he felt they shouldn't be driving and should only be giving birth to male babies, police said.
Nicholas D'Agostino, 29, was arrested on Thursday for an incident that allegedly happened in March, according to KRIV in Houston. D'Agostino is accused of firing a gun at a woman coming out of a Shell gas station in Katy. The woman told police she heard a loud noise and felt a sudden sharp pain in her right arm. It wasn't until later she realized she'd been shot. She was on her way to a car wash, she told KTRK. The bullet went through her driver's side window, she said.
D'Agostino is also accused of shooting a woman in her car on July 10, according to KTRK in Houston. He told police he was driving and a woman swerved into his lane twice, so he shot his gun in self defense.
The victim told KTRK that the bullet lodged only millimeters from her heart. D'Agostino had just been released on bond for that incident when he was arrested for the March one.
Authorities think there are more instances of D'Agostino shooting at women as well, although only two have come forward with injuries. While investigating, deputies searched D'Agostino's Facebook profile and saw that he has a "dim" view of women. He thinks they should "should stay home and birth male babies," according to court records.
D'Agostino faces two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond has been set at $400,000, according to KTRK, and he's due back in court in September.
