BELTON, Texas (KWTX) - Marquis Anne Trevino, 40, and Caleob Levalley, 30, both of Belton, were in the Bell County Jail Tuesday charged in connection with an incident in which a plastic bag was placed over the head of a 4-year-old child.
“The child is OK and did not need additional medical treatment,” Belton spokesman Paul Romer said Tuesday in a press release.
Trevino is charged with failure to report abuse of a child and was held Tuesday in lieu of $5,000 bond.
Levalley is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is held in lieu of $200,000 bond.
Police arrested them at around 11:45 a.m. Monday.
The charges stem from a family disturbance reported at around 9 a.m. on Jan. 30 in the 800 block of North Beal Street during which Levalley was beaten with brass knuckles and a vacuum, Romer said.
The disturbance led to the arrests of three Belton men, but the investigation revealed the attack stemmed from the assault on the child, Romer said.
