SAN MARCOS, Texas — A man who was wanted for allegedly causing serious injuries to an infant was arrested in Killeen, San Marcos police said.
Richard Vincent Blythe, 19, was arrested in Killeen by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force Feb. 4.
According to the City of San Marcos TX - City Hall Facebook page, in November, detectives were contacted by Dell Children's Hospital to investigate injury to a nine-month-old child.
