      A La Feria man is behind bars after he allegedly beat a woman with a baseball bat and raped her.

      La Feria police arrested 26-year-old Rodolfo Delgado for sexual assault and aggaravated assault late Thursday night.

      Investigators told Action 4 News that the investigation all started with a 911 call.

      Officers were called to a domestic disturbance off Bearfield Lane on the city TMs southside around 11:23 p.m. Thursday.

      A woman at the home told police that Delgado had beaten her with a baseball bat and smashed her cell phone.

      Paramedics took the woman to the hospital where authorities learned the woman had also been raped.

      The woman told investigators that Delgado beat her thighs and arms with a baseball bat and choked her.

      According to the woman, Delgado used a sex toy to sodomize her.

      Investigators reported recovering the sex toy and blood-stained bedsheets as evidence.

      Action 4 News does not identify victims of sexual assault but investigators reported that Delgado and the woman knew each other and had a previous relationship.

      Delgado remains in custody at the Cameron County Jail under $60,000 dollars in bonds.

      Court records show that Delgado had a juvenile criminal history and was on probation for two drug crimes at the time of his arrest.
