BROWNFIELD, TX (KCBD) - A Brownfield man has been charged with attempted murder after an attack on a 12-year-old girl with a broken glass mug.

David Lee Rodriguez, 39, is accused of causing severe head injuries to the girl on Sunday just before midnight. According to police reports, Rodriguez was fighting with the victim's mother, a 27-year-old woman, Saturday at their home in the 1000 block of East Lake Street in Brownfield. When Rodriguez started hitting the woman with a glass mug, the child tried to stop him and she was hit in the head with the mug.

Rodriguez fled on foot when the Brownfield Police and EMS arrived. The girl was found bleeding and was taken by AeroCare to Covenant Medical Center in Lubbock.

Officers found Rodriguez around 3:30 a.m. in a home in the 1100 block of East Hill Street, where he was arrested. He was then booked into the Terry County Jail with a $250,000 bond.

According to the Terry County Attorney's office, Rodriguez currently has one pending felony criminal mischief case and multiple past felony convictions, including a 1996 case of aggravated assault to cause serious bodily injury, for which he served five years in prison.
