19-year-old Jackub Hildreth was arrested on Friday after authorities say he carved his name into the forehead of the woman he was dating, 22-year-old Catalina Mireles.
Mireles says she initially met Hildreth on Facebook. They had been seeing each other for three weeks when the horrific attack occurred. The incident started on Thursday when the two got into an argument over their relationship, and escalated into a physical altercation when Mireles told authorities that Hildreth held her down by the neck and punched her in the face “with a closed fist around ten times.” As a result, Catalina’s jaw was broken in three places.
Mireles’s mother Juanita Lopez told KSAT that her daughter was fearful for her life. At some point, Hildreth, who appears to have Catalina’s name tattooed over his right eyebrow, also carved his name into her forehead. “He was going to put in the closet until he figured out what he was going to do with my body,” Mireles said. Hildreth managed to flee the scene before authorities arrived, but was arrested the following day.
Hildreth has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Since he already had warrants out for burglary assault and family assault, Jackub has been placed in jail on a $75,000 bond. His next court date is expected to take place in January.
What a disturbing situation. People are really crazy out here.
