EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - We'll be adding three new faces to the wanted board, and the two are brothers. So we'll begin with the two in Tyler. Their names are Simon and Rene Lopez.

24-year-old Simon Lopez and his brother Rene are both wanted on six second degree felony warrants of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Tyler police say that they were involved in a fight with about 20 people in the early morning hours of Sunday, May 31. Later that morning, police say Rene and Simon were involved in a drive-by shooting on Fleishel Street, and then just minutes later, the pair were involved in another shooting on north Church Street.

If you have any idea where Simon or Rene Lopez could be, e-mail your tip to, or call 903-531-1000. In the meantime, we'll add both of them to our wanted board.

We also want to tell you about a man that the Wood County sheriff's department is trying to find. His name is Jonathan Wesley Jones.

In February of this year, authorities say Jones was at a party in the Quitman area, and allegedly sexually assaulted a girl under the age of 14. He's 5'8", and weighs about 150 pounds, and he's 21 years old. If you know where he is, call Wood County Crimestoppers at 903-763-2274.

We added Charles to our wanted board as well. While we were in Wood County, we went ahead and added someone to the busted board from there.

We told you about Charles Wilburn last week. He was accused of trying to sell a controlled substance, in this case apparently a prescription narcotic. He was arrested Monday in Wichita Falls.

Go to your phone and help put these people behind bars. Send in your tips!
