San Antonio, TX (WOAI) — A disturbing child abuse case is being investigated at Fort Sam Houston and the details are graphic.
Jennifer Marie Vargas is being charged with assault with serious bodily injury after admitting to getting angry and pulling her 6-year-old son by his privates and ripping his scrotum.
According to the affidavit, she then cleaned the wound with alcohol and tried to fix it with super glue. She then allegedly ordered him to go to bed.
When the boy's father returned home, he saw the blood and took the boy to San Antonio Military Medical Center where he underwent surgery.
Vargas could face 10 years in prison if convicted. She's due in court on Monday. As a developing story, News 4 San Antonio will update as soon as more details are made available.
