Brent Bartel - Jailed After Carving Pentagram Into 6-Year-Old Son's Back

Richland Hills, TX (The Weekly Vice) - Brent Bartel, a 39-year-old Texas man, was jailed Wednesday after he carved a pentagram into his 6-year-old son's back - then called 911 to report what he had done.

According to Richland Hills Police, officers were dispatched to a North Texas residence after a man called 911 to report that he had "shed some innocent blood."

When the dispatcher asked what the caller meant, he responded "I inscribed a pentagram on my son."

When the 911 operator asked why the man did that, he responded "Because it was a holy day." Although it wasn't clear exactly what the man meant, investigators believe Bartel might have associated the calendar date 12-12-2012 as a day of significance.

As Bartel was talking to the dispatcher, Bartel's wife ran to a neighbor's house to call police.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found a 6-year-old boy standing inside the house wearing pajama bottoms and no shirt.  Investigators found a large pentagram carved into the boy's back and a box cutter nearby.

In a strange twist, according to the arrest report, Bartel took some of his son's blood and smeared it onto the front door frame of the family's home. Bartel was immediately taken into custody.

The boy was wrapped in a paramedic's jacket and transported to a local hospital where he is listed in stable condition.

Bartel was booked into jail and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond has been set at $500,000.
