OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma City man was arrested Saturday night for assault and attempting to transfer HIV.

According to police, at about 9:40 p.m., officers responded to the incident at N.W. 39th and Barnes Avenue. The victim told police she confronted 32-year-old Apollo Gonzalez for being drunk because he was supposed to be taking care of a 13-year-old.

Gonzalez reportedly became angry and began yelling. That's when police said Gonzalez, who is HIV-positive, spit in the victim's face two times.

Gonzalez was arrested at the scene.
