A California man savagely beat his wife after getting angry when she kept posting selfies to Instagram, police said.

Julio Benitiez was allegedly on drugs when he choked and punched his partner at their Fresno home on Wednesday afternoon, reports the Fresno Bee.

The 37-year-old inflicted injuries on his wife’s eyes, arms, legs and neck. He also threatened to kill her.

His alleged victim, who has not been named, fled the property with her 5- and 7-year-old children and called cops for help.

She left behind a 2-year-old child, who was taken by Benitiez shortly after.

Police launched a manhunt for the alleged attacker. He was tracked down with the child, who was not injured, several hours later.

Benitiez was arrested and charged with domestic violence and making criminal threats, reports KFSN.

Officers found an air pistol at his home and determined Benitiez was under the influence of a stimulant, said Fresno Police Department Sgt. Ray Villalvazo.
