(Newser) – Imagine a loved one angrily carving his name in your forehead. Well, that's what Jackub Jackson Hildreth allegedly did to his Texas girlfriend Thursday before fleeing the scene, the Houston Chronicle reports. But San Antonio police caught up with the 19-year-old and arrested him the next day. According to an affidavit, Hildreth first punched Catalina Mireles, 22, in the head and neck during an argument about their relationship, per KSAT. "He was going to put [me] in the closet until he figured out what he was going to do with my body," said the 22-year-old, who feared for her life. Hildreth is said to have a history of violence and outstanding warrants for burglary assault and family violence-strangulation. He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
