OGDEN — Police say a man may lose an eye as a result of a fight with his adult stepson over the weekend.

Julian Daryl Hidalgo, 30, of Tremonton, was charged Monday in 2nd District Court with aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony, and aggravated assault, a second-degree felony.

On Saturday, Ogden police were called to McKay-Dee Hospital on a report of a man who had severe facial injuries.

“(The victim’s) eyes were extremely swollen and his left eye was swollen closed,” the charges state. “A doctor later examined (the victim) and stated that his globe in his eye was ruptured and described it as a ‘really bad injury.’ This means that (the victim) is likely to lose his eye.”

The man told police he was confronted by Hidalgo, his stepson, about the way he was treating Hidalgo’s mother, the charges state. Hidalgo then demanded some of the stepfather’s belongings, but he refused.

“Julian struck (the victim) several times across the face with ... a metal whip,” the charges state.

In August, Hidalgo pleaded guilty to assaulting another family member, according to court records. He was given a suspended jail sentence and sentenced to probation.
