Worthington police officers were dispatched to a local residence for a report of a domestic assault in progress. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the victim who stated he was threatened by his brother, Cruz Antonio Fuentes, 39, while taking out the trash.

The victim told officers he and Fuentes used to live together. Fuentes reportedly told the victim he wanted to kill him before he began hitting the victim and grabbing him by the hair.

Officers observed multiple cuts on the victim's face, head and arms, as well as a clump of hair on the ground where the victim stated the incident had occurred. The victim advised he had a lot of pain in his neck and wanted to be checked out by medical personnel.

Fuentes was located by officers later that day near the corner of Liberty Drive and Lake Avenue. Fuentes reportedly stated he'd gone to the house after hearing that somebody wanted to hurt the victim, but that when he got there the victim began hitting him. Fuentes said he was unsure as to why the victim would do this.
