See the latest update on the police hunt for Juan Garcia.

Phoenix police are looking for 18-year-old Juan Garcia, who allegedly went over to his girlfriend's house on Friday night, beat her 2-year-old son to death, and left.

The boy's 18-year-old mother, Wendy Rogel-Pagas, was jailed on Saturday, after telling police she called 9-1-1 -- more than three hours after the boy went unconscious from Garcia's alleged beating.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, Rogel-Pagas and her son -- Jorge Zamora-Rogel -- were at home on Friday when Garcia showed up around 7 p.m. with some food.

After Garcia's girlfriend informed him that her son wouldn't be eating any of the food he brought over, Garcia went to the boy's bedroom and attempted to pull him out of the room by his ear.

When the boy began to cry, and telling the kid to "shut up" didn't work, police say Garcia picked the boy up by the throat and began slamming his head into the bedroom wall.

Garcia then began slamming the boy's head against the ground, beating the kid unconscious before Rogel-Pagas intervened, according to court documents.

When Rogel-Pagas did try to get involved, police say he whipped her with an electrical cord and choked her.

Garcia attempted to wake the boy up -- by hitting him more, lifting him up by his ankle, bending his fingers back, and slapping him face -- but the boy remained unconscious, according to police.

Garcia then just decided to leave.

Rogel-Pagas also tried to wake the boy up -- which still didn't work -- and she told police she cleaned the "bloody froth" coming out of his mouth several times.

Rogel-Pagas told police her son's arms were spasming uncontrollably, and his erratic breathing was making a "rattling sound" -- which she recognized from "one of her dogs which died shortly after making this noise."

About 90 minutes after Garcia left, he showed up again and tried to wake the boy up -- again by hitting the kid and bending his fingers back -- which still didn't work.

Eventually, police say, the boy stopped breathing and his heart stopped beating as well.

This makes me very sad. Anyone having sex with the chance of getting pregnant should have parenting classes. Rest in peace little angel.

I have a two year old myself and I couldn't imagine anyone doing that to My child especially in front of Me!! I hate that bitch for not taking the beating for her son!! If I were her on the first time he laid hands on that child I would of stab the shit out of that bitch until he died! I'm sure this is not the first time he laid hands on that lil boy and even as horrible his death might have been I'm glad to know he wont be hurt anymore and hopefully has  found peace that he never had with his stupid mom & her stupid ass boyfriend!! I can't even imagine how terrified this lil boy was of him to be in his bedroom and not wanting to eat! I hate this Bitch so much and every mother out there like her!!

I like your comment and agree. I too was a young mother. My first at 17, I would have died before anyone touched my children. I would have bet his ass. believe me a mother protecting her child could take any man down and I know this from experience when my ex-husband tryed to take my son from me.I bet his ass and I was never stronger.He had two black eye's and a broken nose when I was done, he told everyone he got in a bar fight. He never tryed that again and he was out the door for ever. I had four kids raised them alone and they are all doing wonderful. No man is worth your childs life. This woman has brain damage. I am in New Mexico and I will look at every young man I see. Ya never know who might see him.

This is not about anyone of us. It is a sickning thing this man did. Who cares what he looks like. He is evil. The mother should have jumped him and took those hits and protected her child. NO ONE WILL EVER LAY A HAND ON A CHILD WHEN I"M AROUND. NO MAN IS WORTH THAT; It's heart breaking that she did not protect her own child. I would have died first or killed him. Poor baby boy. Rest in peace little man. Rest in Gods arms. The good news is there is more good then bad in this world, but these days it's a close race. Everyone memories is face ya never know who may see him.

What is the harm in believing in someone who loves us unconditionaly; enought to give his life for. I have faith God is there. The truth is we are all going to find out some day. I would rather believe I am loved and wanted and  to find out when I die that He is real. When you die and lived a life of disbelief and find out He is really there it will be to late for your soul. Whats the harm in living a positive life believing in the one who loves and created us all. If I'm wrong no harm just a great life, If I'm right I live with my father in peace.

Juan Garcia and Rogal Pagas, you should be hung, beating with bats, and hit serverly in the head just like you did to your child. You both are a waste of human life and should of never been born. Your parents are failures aswell, they should be punished as well for failure to rasie their children properly. Drop DEAD YOU LOW LIFE FUCKS & DONT COME TO TEXAS !!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE DEFINATLY HATED HERE.

So next timego against your "religious and moral" views and use birth control.

Hey, howabout this, maybe start a trend;

Your guidelines:If you've never had a pet or a house plant that has survived in your care, ifyou've never completed a project or HIGH SCHOOL or  if you look forward to having a kid for theGOVERNMENT funds that you'll receive,,,,, don't do it!

There is no excuse for what that piece of shit did to that little boy and as far as that sorry excuse for a mother the fact that she wasn't beat to death trying to protect that precious little boy proves what a pathetic gender women are becoming she obviously put many things before her son so as sad as this is to say though he certainly didnt deserve what happend to him his precious little soul will be happier in heaven with god and angels than living with people who obviously didnt love or care for him the way all children deserve.  Children are a blessing and a gift not a right or a burden if you dont want one then stop fucking without protection, have an abortion, or do the right thing and put the child up for adoption.  I hope that both of them get exactly what the deserve. Rest in peace little one.

and this is why our government should support adoption rather than investing in abortion services. at least these babies might have a chance at growing up in a safe loving home and not with unstable crazy people.
