A man who police say is wanted for murder in El Salvador is accused of putting a knife in a man's mouth and threatening to cut him up, according to court documents filed Monday.
Hugo Rolando Sol-Cortez was arrested in Austin on Saturday and faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
The victim had been renting a room at a mobile home park when Sol-Cortez and another man busted into the room and began punching and kicking him, an arrest affidavit said.
The document said the two men pulled out handguns and held them to the victim's head as they asked about text messages sent from his phone to Sol-Cortez's girlfriend.
The victim told the men the messages were sent accidentally, but they tied him up with a shirt and put a belt over his mouth, according to the report.
At one point, Sol-Cortez put a knife inside the man's mouth and cut him, the affidavit said.
The pair eventually released the man after he promised he would not call police, but he immediately ran to the mobile home park's office and called 911.
Travis County deputies arrived and took the two men into custody.
After learning that Sol-Cortez was wanted on a murder charge in El Salvador, he was handed over to the U.S. Marshals Service, the affidavit said.
