Dameon Marmolejo, the 20-year-old Lubbock man accused of brutally beating his ex-girlfriend, has been arrested.

According to the Lubbock Police Department, Marmolejo was arrested Thursday morning (August 17) at a home on Avenue O. The United States Marshal Service Fugitive Task Team Foxtrot made the arrest around 10:45 a.m.

The story of Marmolejo’s victim went viral in June after her mother, Juanita Torres, posted graphic photos on her Facebook page showing the girl in the hospital with numerous injuries. This prompted Lubbock Police Department Lt. Ray Mendoza to ask for the public’s help to apprehend Marmolejo.

Marmolejo has been booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center. He’s been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury.
