The alleged attack was recorded on home surveillance video, according to Zuniga’s warrant. Police said the victim was struck several times by a man with what appeared to be a crowbar. He suffered cuts to the head, bruises and multiple abrasions while in the presence of his three young daughters, according to the warrant.
Investigators were able to track down Zuniga and her daughters at a Super 8 motel on Church Street in Decatur. The children were safely recovered early Thursday, police said.
