Manuel broke into his ex-wife's home, tied her down with duct tape and severely beat her for several hours. He reportedly put an icepick to her eye and slashed it across her face.
After hours of beating her in and out of consciousness he stole her phone, loose cash and car and fled. The ex-wife, who has an order of protection against Manuel, was left severely injured. Manuel has previously arrests for assault and violating the order of protection.
Manuel has a court date set for sometime in the upcoming weeks. “He knew we were looking for him, he ran out of money,” said 104th Precinct Captain Chistopher Manson. “He is arrested now, so everything is good.”
