A Texas teenager carved part of his name into his girlfriend’s forehead with a knife — part of an hours-long assault that she didn’t think she’d survive, the victim and police said.
Jackub Jackson Hildreth, 19, was arrested Friday on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after the 22-year-old victim told police she and the teen got into argument about their relationship a day earlier, the San Antonio Express-News reported.
Hildreth punched his girlfriend several times and held her down before using a knife to carve his name — “JACK” — into her forehead, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by the newspaper.
Hildreth’s girlfriend, Catalina Mireles, said the attack started early Thursday and continued into the afternoon, she told KSAT.
“He was going to put me in the closet until he figured out what he was going to do with my body,” she told the station. “Don’t trust everybody you think you might know.”
Hildreth fled the residence after the attack, which took place just three weeks after the couple met on Facebook, Mireles said.
The teen was left with a broken jaw in three places after Hildreth allegedly punched her in the face about 10 times. Mireles also suffered a black eye and her face was covered in large bruises.
“She’s scared for her life, he tried to kill her,” Mireles’ mother, Juanita Lopez, told KSAT. “I don’t ever want him to get out again — because he’s going to hurt someone else again.”
At the time of his arrest, Hildreth had two outstanding warrants, including one for assaulting a family member by strangulation, the Express-News reported.
Hildreth, who was jailed late Sunday on $75,000 bond, is scheduled to appear in court next month, ABC News reported.
