Soledad, California (The Weekly Vice) - Fernando Solano Jr., a 31-year-old Salinas man was jailed Sunday after he allegedly beat his girlfriend unconscious before pummeling the couple's baby to the point of a bloody nose.
According to police, officers were called to the girlfriend's home around 9:30 Sunday night on a report of a domestic assault.
When police arrived, they found a woman with cuts and bruises on her face and a swollen eye. Her 18-month-old child was also battered and then left with a bloody nose.
Investigators say the woman told them that her boyfriend, identified as Solano, beat her outside of her apartment before dragging her inside where he continued to beat, kick and choke her until she was unconscious. He also reportedly used a knife to slash her face multiple times.
Solano then allegedly pummeled the face of a child he and the woman shared. The child was found with a bruised face and a bloody nose.
Police, acting on the tip of a witness, found a man matching Solano's description at a local bowling alley and took him into custody. Charges were filed shortly after the man's identity was confirmed.
Solano, who has been arrested on domestic violence charges in the past, told the woman he planned to kill her and her ex- boyfriend and then run away to Mexico.
Solano was booked into jail on felony charges of attempted murder, domestic violence, violating a restraining order and child endangerment.
