San Angelo Man Arrested for Allegedly Beating a Woman so Brutally He Broke Her Leg

SAN ANGELO – A San Angelo man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly attacked a woman beating her so badly she suffered a broken leg.

According to a law enforcement affidavit, on September 21, 2022, officers responded to the 25th Street in San Angelo regarding an unknown problem. Once police arrived, they discovered a woman whose injuries included a severely broken leg.

On September 28, 2022, investigators met with witnesses and other individuals involved and obtained statements. Through the investigation, they learned that both the victim and defendant, identified as Stephen Thomas Walter, contradicted the statements provided by witnesses.

It was also noted that the severity of injury did not coincide with the initial statement that the victim “fell down.” The victim’s leg will require two surgeries due to the positioning of the break and the severity of damage sustained to the kneecap and ligaments.

This information provided sufficient probable cause to arrested Walter for causing serious bodily injury to the victim.

Walter was booked into the Tom Green County Detention Facility on September 28, 2022 and currently has a bond of $100,000.

Just a punk ass slug.  Maybe Brutus will get ahold of him at county.

Big Daddy seems to have an unhealthy fascination with men being sexually assaulted in prison. I would go as far as calling it a fetish. Please get help.
