POLICE SEEK INFORMATION ABOUT AGGRAVATED ASSAULT
A family on the way to a quinceanera stopped for gasoline and, while there, had their vehicle attacked by two suspects, making this the
Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.”
On Saturday, March 31st, 2012, at 7:00 P.M., the father of the family was filling up with gas in the Diamond Shamrock station at 3898 Doniphan and Sunland Park when he saw his son run out of the station store yelling and followed by a Suspect with a knife in his hand. The son got into the car and the father tried to drive off as the Suspect attempted to slash the vehicle’s tire and then stabbed at the vehicle hood. At the same time, another Suspect punched at the passenger side door. The family was able to escape.
Detectives from the Police Department’s Crimes Against Persons unit determined that, while inside the store, the suspect who had the knife was noticing the wife in the car, which angered the son; and that’s when the Suspect took out his knife and began chasing the son out of the store.
- Suspect is described as an Hispanic man, 5’9”, with a thin build, shaved head, white t-shirt and brown shorts, and tattooed “sleeves” on his arms.
- 2nd Suspect, also Hispanic, was 6’ tall, heavy build, shaved head, in brown nursing scrubs with tattooed “sleeves” on his arms.
