Texas mom allegedly hurt son, then glued genitals

Posted: Updated:

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A South Texas woman has been accused of ripping her 6-year-old son's genitals during a rage and trying to repair the wound with glue.

An FBI complaint charges the 34-year-old San Antonio woman with assault within maritime and territorial jurisdiction resulting in serious bodily injury. The mother, who was arrested Wednesday, remains in custody pending a bail hearing Monday in federal court in San Antonio.

The boy's father is in the Army. The incident happened Sept. 27 at the family's home at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston.

Prosecutors say the 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.
