Police had also been searching for Deleon's girlfriend, Damaris Noemi Chavez-Calderon, after the incident, citing concern for her safety. She accompanied Deleon when he turned himself into police headquarters, where she told police she had willingly gone with Deleon.
Police said the victim has been released from the hospital.
