An El Centro woman was allegedly assaulted Thursday by her two half-brothers, who reportedly broke her nose, knocked her to the ground and repeatedly kicked her, according to El Centro police.
The brothers, Miguel Angel Garcia, 19, and a minor, were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, battery with serious injury and a hate crime.
El Centro police Lt. Paul Longoria would not elaborate on the hate crime allegation.
Garcia is being held on $20,000 bail at county jail and the minor was taken to juvenile hall.
Longoria said police were called to the emergency room of El Centro Regional Medical Center about 1:14 p.m. Thursday by the victim, Carmen Flores, 22.
Flores reportedly had gone to her mother's house on Brighton Avenue to discuss some bills and property with her mother. Her half-brothers live with the mother.
