How do I block text from a particular number?

I have a Moto G first gen and want to block someone who is texting me. Is there a way to do this?

in Messenger - Android Apps on Google Play has a block sender option (really just archives it but you never see it)

open up the message thread from the contact you want to block

tap the 3 vertical dot menu in the upper right

tap People & options

there will be a block option (with the number being block listed)
