The victim told her mother on Thursday that Garcia touched her inappropriately after the mother returned home from work. Police confirmed with the girl that Garcia made “skin to skin” contact with her while the two were alone, according to the affidavit.

The mother immediately called San Antonio police and then “gathered their belongings and moved out of the home,” according to the affidavit.

Garcia “is controlling when they get into disagreements,” the mother told police. “He tends to call her continuously until she answers the phone.”

The mother told police Garcia’s last attempt to call her was around 9:40 p.m. on Thursday and said that it’s unusual for him to not reach out.

Garcia is being held on a $50,000 bond, according to court records.
