SAN ANTONIO – A man accused of hitting a toddler so hard that it left bruises on the victim is now behind bars.

Janoi Cabezas-Chasqui, 34, is charged with injury to a child, a third-degree felony.

Police said Cabezas-Chasqui called the toddler's mother while she was at work and said he was upset because the boy wasn't eating or "following the rules." 

An affidavit says Cabezas-Chasqui confessed to hitting the child and that "he was not afraid to do it again if (he) did not behave."

The woman called police after she said it appeared the man was about to lose his temper during another incident and when police arrived, they saw bruises on the child's face.

Police arrested Cabezas-Chasqui at the home.
