A Border Patrol agent has been charged with assaulting a 14-year-old immigrant for having a cellphone in detention, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Aldo Francisco Arteaga of Tucson was arrested Thursday on felony charges of assaulting a minor.

CBP officials said Arteaga surrendered Thursday after Jan. 3o video showed him assaulting the boy.

“The officer … sees the juvenile with a phone, a prohibited item, takes the phone from the juvenile and proceeds to punch him in the stomach,” Silva told the Los Angeles Times.

Arteaga couldn’t be reached for comment.
