BCSO sheriff: Toddler showed signs of violent sexual assault, being stabbed

BCSO sheriff: Toddler showed signs of violent sexual assault, being stabbed

The incident began with a 911 call at 9 a.m. on December 31 from Herrera saying that her relative, a girl less than 2 years old, suffered dog bites when she had wandered outside the night before.

The depraved pair appeared to try to cover up the horrific attack, when medical personnel were called to help out a tot who was suffering from a dog bite.

The toddler remains at University Hospital where she is recovering.

"I can't even begin to describe to you the level of depravity that went into this crime", Mr Salazar said, according to News 4 San Antonio.

Deputies continued to investigate the case and soon realized the story of a woman who is a relative of the victim did not match Cardenas' story.

A San Antonio-area man is jailed on a first-degree sexual assault charge after a female toddler he reported had been mauled by a dog was determined by investigators to have been sexually assaulted and stabbed. In a press conference Tuesday, Sheriff Salazar said they arrested both Isaac Cardenas and Crystal Herrera.

The document also revealed that the 21-month-old girl suffered "acute respiratory failure" and will have to undergo reconstructive surgery to fix her injuries.

According to a local NBC affiliate report on the incident workers from Animal Care Services (ACS) were also called in to pick up the dogs at the home and found that the dogs displayed no signs of aggressive behavior at all.

Salazar said the girl will be taken into CPS custody. Additionally, she had multiple "non-accidental" stab wounds to "intimate" parts of her body.

Bexar County Sheriff Jeff Salazar said: "At this point the little girl's injuries are quite severe".

Cardenas was arrested and charged with super aggravated sexual assault of a child, which is a capital felony punishable by a minimum sentence of 20 years in prison. Herrera, 22, was arrested on a charge of injury to a child by omission. His bond was set at $300,000.
