SAN ANTONIO – A man was arrested after San Antonio police say he assaulted two children because he was upset over “financial issues.”
Eric Martinez, 35, has been charged with injury to a child with the intent of bodily injury and assault-family, records with the Bexar County Jail show.
An arrest warrant affidavit states that on Saturday, he assaulted the children with a belt at a home on the South Side.
One child had slash marks and blood from a cut. There were visible marks on the legs of a second child “which were raised and red like welts,” the affidavit states.
A witness said Martinez was angry because he was not getting enough money back on his income taxes, the affidavit states.
He then became upset over a missing cap for his cologne bottle.
Records show he was taken into custody on Wednesday. His bond is set at $40,000.
