The wife of a soldier stationed at Joint Base San Antonio was taken into custody by the FBI this week after she allegedly tore her six-year-old son's genitals as punishment, and then used superglue to fix them.
Upon closer inspection, it was revealed that the child's scrotum had been partially severed, resulting in a 4 centimeter-long tear and significant bruising.
He was rushed to the hospital where surgeons were able to repair the damage.
The affidavit says Vargas, 34, admitted to inflicting the injury out of anger with the child.
After lining his underwear with paper towels, Vargas "then told him to go to bed."
Vargas was arrested this past Wednesday and charged with assault within maritime and territorial jurisdiction resulting in serious bodily injury.
