A Texas man pleaded guilty to beating his teenage girlfriend to a pulp for downloading the Snapchat app, according to reports.
Dameon Marmolejo, 21, appeared in Lubbock County court Monday morning on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection to the grisly attack, EverythingLubbock reported.
Prosecutors said Marmolejo attacked 18-year-old Solidad Torres at her home in June 2017 after realizing she had a Snapchat message on her phone.
The girlfriend told police they had met through Snapchat, but she deleted the app when he accused her of cheating.
Torres said he became angry when the message flashed on her phone screen and slapped her across the face for re-downloading the app.
Marmolejo then allegedly threw her to the ground and began to pummel her until she flipped over to protect her head and face. The boyfriend, however, began stomping on her back and head, according to authorities.
She was able to briefly escape to the bathroom, but he forced his way inside and continued to assault her, police said.
He then allegedly slammed her head against the bathtub, leaving her unconscious in a pool of blood, according to news station KCBD.
Following the grisly incident, Torres was hospitalized and required 15 staples on her forehead.
The boyfriend was arrested after authorities matched his sneakers to the bruising pattern on the young woman’s body.
