Santa Fe police say Michael S. Baca, 27, used a cigarette to burn the 5-year-old son of his girlfriend on more than one occasion.

Baca posted a $25,000 surety bond and was released from jail at 5:06 p.m. Thursday, according to online jail records. He has no criminal conviction history, according to an online state court database, but has been named in multiple domestic violence police reports with SFPD, according to a warrant filed in Magistrate Court for the man’s arrest.

The boy told police “Mike” would get mad at him and throw him to the ground and twice used his cigarettes — Marlboro reds, according to what the boy told police — to burn the kid, once on the forehead and then last week behind the left ear.

Here is the story in Friday’s New Mexican for more details and a couple of other versions of the story:
