Police charged a man Tuesday after he reportedly entered his girlfriend’s apartment without her consent and assaulted her.
Officers were called about a disturbance around 6:57 p.m. Tuesday at Brady Station Apartments, 4230 East 53rd Street, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Upon arrival, officers made contact with the complainant, the report stated, who told police her ex-boyfriend, 38-year-old Sergio Salazar, had followed her from the parking lot towards her apartment.
Salazar reportedly wanted to see their child, but it was not his visitation day, the report detailed, and as she tried to close the door, Salazar pushed it open and entered without her consent.
After attempting to hug and kiss her, the complainant pushed Salazar away, the report said, and he then grabbed and twisted her right hand.
While officers were in the apartment talking to the woman, Salazar knocked on the front door, the report stated, and officers asked him what was going on. Salazar told police he and the complainant were arguing, but he did not enter without her consent and he did not assault her.
Another man in the apartment reportedly told police he had only heard the argument, but he had heard Salazar enter without the complainant’s consent.
Salazar was charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit assault, a first-degree felony.
The report detailed several text messages showed Salazar calling his ex-girlfriend a “puta” and calling her numerous times a day, one day more than 100 times, and a protective order was filled out against Salazar as well.
Jail records show Salazar was taken to the Ector County Detention Center Wednesday and has a $50,000 bond.
