The victim was taken to Mimbres Memorial Hospital for treatment and identified the suspect as a family member... 47 year old Anthony Torres.
Chief Carillo said Torres had left the scene but was apprehended by Deming Police a short time later in a Dodge Ram pickup. Carillo said that Torres refused officers orders to exit the vehicle, then began fighting with officers, refused to cooperate and was subsequently tased.
Torres is charged with attempted first degree murder… attempted aggravated assault with a deadly weapon… battery on a household member… and resisting evading officers.
Torres appeared before Magistrate Judge Ray Baese Thursday afternoon during a video arraignment.
