A man allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend's South Austin home and assaulted her husband and dog, police said.
On Dec. 4, the suspect, identified as Kiley Kalonnie Tijerina, was found by police after they received calls of a physical disturbance. The husband originally called police to report someone banging on his door, then called again to report that Tijerina had entered the residence and assaulted him.
According to the affidavit, Tijerina entered the house, and went into the bedroom where the victim and his wife were sleeping. Tijerina allegedly punched the victim in the face and neck four times.
Tijerina later told police he was at the house to see his "girlfriend," the victim's wife. Tijerina allegedly claimed that the victim's wife had instructed him to come over, police said. He told police that he was upset with his girlfriend for staying at the father of her child's residence.
The victim's wife told police she knew Tijerina from a previous dating relationship but that she had never invited him to come over.
According to the affidavit, the victim's dog was found with injuries and was transported to the Animal Hospital for critical conditions. Police believe the dog was crushed by the door or stepped on.
Tijerina has been charged with burglary of a residence, with his bail set at $10,000. According to online records, he is not currently in Travis County Jail.
