SAN ANTONIO (October 24, 2013) A 34-year-old San Antonio woman whose husband is serving in the Army is accused of ripping her 6-year-old son's genitals while in a rage and then trying to repair the wound with glue.
An FBI complaint charges the woman with assault within maritime and territorial jurisdiction resulting in serious bodily injury.
The woman, who was arrested Wednesday, remained in custody Thursday pending a bond hearing Monday in federal court in San Antonio.
The incident happened Sept. 27 at the family's home at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston.
Prosecutors say the boy’s father returned home from work, found his injured son and took him to a military hospital.
The boy, who's recovering from a lacerated scrotum and bruising, remains with his father.
Authorities are investigating why the mother was angry.
