RICHLAND HILLS (December 12, 2012)—Brent Troy Bartel of North Richland Hills, who’s accused of carving a pentagram on his 6-year-old son's back, told a 911 dispatcher that he did it because Dec. 12, 2012 is “a holy day,” police said.
Richland Hills police said Brent Troy Bartel is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
He was jailed Wednesday in lieu of $500,000 bond.
Sgt. Nathan Stringer says Bartel called 911 early Wednesday morning and said he'd shed innocent blood.
Wednesday's date is 12-12-12, a once-in-a-century event.
Officers in the Fort Worth suburb say they arrived and found that most of the child's back was covered with a large pentagram.
Richland Hills police also recovered a box cutter they believe was the weapon used to cut the boy.
The child was taken to a hospital.
His condition was not immediately released.
