Dad FERNANDO SOLANO JR. has been arrested for beating his girlfriend and their 18-month-old child. At the time he was on probation for previously battering her.
Guys like this respond to one thing: jail. Nice-y nice crap like probation makes no impact on their thick skulls whatsoever. It just tells them that the justice system doesn't take violence against women and children seriously. So neither should they.
Salinas man arrested in spouse abuse
January 25, 2011
A Salinas man was arrested in Soledad on Sunday after his girlfriend reported he beat her and their young child.
Police were called to the girlfriend's home on Cesar Chavez Street at about 9:30 p.m. When they arrived they met with the woman, who officers said had cuts and bruises on her face and a swollen eye. Her 18-month-old had a bloody nose.
The woman told police that her boyfriend, the child's father, had beaten her outside of her apartment and then dragged her inside where he kicked and choked her into unconsciousness. He also used a knife to repeatedly cut her and hit the couple's child, according to Soledad police.
After officers took the woman's report, they learned a man matching the boyfriend's description was at a bowling alley, reportedly looking sweaty and nervous.
When officers got there they found Fernando Solano Jr., 31, of Salinas, and arrested him on suspicion of child endangerment, attempted murder and other crimes.
Solano is currently on probation for battering his girlfriend on other occasions.
