ODESSA - An Odessa man is behind bars on charges of beating up his girlfriend and her son.

Higinio Garcia, Junior, is now in jail for assault and injury to a child after police say he attacked them last Friday night.

Garcia apparently got into a fight with his girlfriend and got so mad, she claims he pushed her to the ground and began kicking her face and sides.

That's when she told police her 12-year-old son tried to intervene and was punched by Garcia.
