Jack E. Balseca-Garcia

A Bell County grand jury on Wednesday indicted a Killeen man on a third-degree felony charge of injury to an elderly individual-intentional bodily injury after police said he fractured the nose of a 69-year-old man in September, according to court records.

Jack E. Balseca-Garcia, 38, was listed in the Bell County Jail as of Wednesday afternoon with a $50,000 bond on the charge.

Police were called on Sept. 28, 2018, to the 1100 block of Old Farm-to-Market 440 in response to a 911 caller who said a man’s nose was bleeding profusely after being punched, according to the arrest affidavit.

A witness saw Balseca-Garcia “outside the victim’s apartment door, yelling,” police said.

The victim told police that Balseca-Garcia “had come to (his) apartment, demanding money,” according to the arrest affidavit. When the victim refused, Balseca-Garcia “punched him in the face multiple times.”

Officers took photos of the victim’s injuries, later determined to be a fractured nose and broken dentures as a result of the assault, police said.
