SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A 38-year-old San Antonio woman has been arrested on charges alleging that she used an aluminum bat to beat two teenage brothers in her home and locked them in a garage.

Authorities say Marissa Monica Cano was arrested Sunday and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

An arrest affidavit obtained by KSAT-TV says a 15-year-old boy escaped from the house Saturday and went to a fast-food restaurant where police were called.

The teen had severe injuries and Bexar (bayr) County Sheriff Javier Salazar told the station he was emaciated, weighing only about 70 pounds (32 kilograms).

Authorities say the teens’ parents don’t live in the area and they’re often left with Cano.

Cano was no longer being held Monday and it’s not clear if she has an attorney.
