According to court records, motor vehicle investigators with the Iowa Department of Transportation became suspicious when someone attempted to use a bogus Social Security number to renew a vehicle registration in December 2018 and July 2019.

Investigators determined the Social Security number belonged to a woman who had died, according to court records.

A warrant for Pascual’s arrest was issued in August 2019, but he remained at large until Monday when police were called to a report he had struck a 12-year-old girl with a belt as discipline. Police also arrested him for one count of child endangerment.

Pascual was released from jail pending trial.
