Munoz arrested after alleged bond violation

Hector Munoz

A Brookings man charged with the aggravated assault of a four-month-old child has been arrested after an alleged bond violation.

Twenty-seven-year-old Hector Munoz is accused in the assault that left the girl with a broken arm and a skull fracture. He’s facing two counts of aggravated assault. A police report says Munoz admitted punching the girl in the head in March and grabbing and pulling her by the arm on April 2nd.

Munoz posted bond on April 10th. On Friday, April 17, he was arrested after law enforcement responded to a tip indicating he was at a Brookings residence with the alleged victim. That would be a violation of his bond conditions.

The State filed a petition to revoke bond following the arrest. That matter will be heard by Judge Gregory Stoltenburg Tuesday afternoon.

Bond had earlier been reduced from $7500 cash only to $7500 cash or surety.

The charges are both Class 3 felonies punishable by up to 15 years in prison and/or a $30,000 fine.

Note:  The bond hearing was changed to 9:30 a.m. before Judge Dawn Elshere.
