SAN ANTONIO – A man with a history of family violence is accused of carving his name into his girlfriend’s forehead.

Catalina Mireles, 22 says she thought she was going to die.

“He was going to put in the closet until he figured out what he was going to do with my body,” she said.

Jackub Jackson Hildreth, 19, was arrested after the assault Thursday at an apartment complex on the Northwest Side, according to an arrest affidavit. He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Mireles told police Hildreth held her by the neck and punched her in the face when a fight about their relationship escalated, the affidavit states.
