A Lubbock man pleaded guilty Monday morning (June 11) for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after beating his girlfriend in 2017.

In June 2017, 21-year-old Dameon Marmolejo discovered that his girlfriend downloaded a social media app (Snapchat) and beat her, causing enough damage that she needed 15 staples across her head and three stitches. She also suffered bruises all over her body.

Marmeolejo was arrested in August 2017 by U.S. Marshals in the 1900 block of Avenue O.
