One of Victoria's most wanted fugitives is behind bars.
Trinidad "Tito" Sanabria, 31, was arrested Wednesday afternoon after a multi-agency task force located him at a home in the 1200 block of Melrose Street.
Sanabria, who was featured by Crime Stoppers in August, was wanted on three outstanding arrest warrants, charging him with bail jumping/failure to appear, bond forfeiture on the charge of possession of marijuana and violation of parole on the charge of burglary of habitation.
Evidence gathered by the Victoria Police Department allowed the department to obtain arrest warrants for Sanabria and his girlfriend, Chelsea Montano, 29.
Both were charged with injury to a child and aggravated assault of a child, according to a U.S. Marshals Service news release.
The charges stem from a November beating of a 3-year-old child.
The search, according to the news release, began in the early morning hours at Sanabria's last known address. Information gathered there led the task force to the home in the 1200 block of Melrose Street, according to the news release.
Also arrested at the location was Doralinda Ayala, 32, on suspicion of hindering apprehension or prosecution for allowing a known fugitive to hide at her home.
Montano was arrested at her home in the 2500 block of East Mockingbird Lane.
