SAN ANTONIO - A man is behind bars after he helped rob a man and then backed into him with a car, police said.

An arrest affidavit said what started off as a robbery turned violent.

The victim’s money was stolen. He was then beaten, and when he tried to get his wallet back, he was purposely hit with a car, authorities said.

Police said a man and a woman showed up to a house on Sept. 1, and the woman's boyfriend came outside and knocked the man to the ground and took some of his money.

The victim ran away, but Jonathan Hernandez, who was nearby and saw what happened, told the man who robbed the victim to get in his car so they could chase the victim, the affidavit said.

The pair caught up with the victim a short time later. Then, the man who initially robbed him tackled him to the ground, while Hernandez hit him, authorities said.

Police said the man who tacked the victim took his wallet, but the victim was able to reach in the car and get it back. That’s when Hernandez put the vehicle in reverse and backed into the victim on the sidewalk, knocking him down, the affidavit said.

The pair then took more money that was in the victim’s wallet and left him there, police said. The victim was eventually taken to a hospital.

Hernandez is being held in the Bexar County Jail on $75,000 bond.
