Phoenix Police have arrested a man suspected of physically abusing his girlfriend's twin babies.

Officers say the woman left her son and daughter with Saul Leon and their 12-year-old brother Sunday at their apartment near 67th Avenue and McDowell.

Authorities say the boy left the apartment to get Leon a soda and when he returned, he noticed his little brother was crying.

Court records show the infant suffered bruises on his face and a bloody nose.

Someone called 911 and detectives say a witness told them she apparently saw Leon hitting the twins through a open window and heard crying.

During an interview, investigators say Leon admitted to hitting the siblings.

He's charged with felony counts of child abuse.
