A 20-year-old sister is behind bars after school officials discovered a bruise on her 5-year-old brother.
Brownsville police arrested Ashley Nicole Garcia during the early morning hours of Thursday, April 17.
A warrant for her arrest was issued for injury to a child because of a complaint filed by a school back in February.
The student allegedly showed up to school with a bruise on his forehead and arm, according to Brownsville police.
It was documented that the 5-year-old was hit by his sister, but he also told authorities he had fell off his trampoline at home.
The Brownsville woman TMs bond is pending at this time.
