ABILENE, Texas -

An Abilene man was indicted Thursday for allegedly striking a female family member with a metal club and cutting her.

Juan Rodriguez, 22, was arrested in May after police said he used a metal closet rod as a club to beat the victim around her body and head. He allegedly used a small saw blade to cut her on or around her face. Police said the victim was seriously injured.

A Taylor County grand jury indicted Rodriguez on two counts of aggravated assault.
