Jul 22, 2014

  Police arrested a Las Cruces woman suspected of stabbing her boyfriend following a heated argument this past weekend.

Genevieve M. Reyes, 34, of the 1300 block of Gladys Drive, is charged with one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

At around 10 p.m. Saturday, July 19, Las Cruces Police were dispatched to the report of a stabbing at the couple’s home. As one of the officers approached the home, he found a 38-year-old man walking along Lees Drive with his 6-year-old son. The man had stab wounds to his hands and abdomen, and was transported to a local hospital. His injuries were not life-threatening.

Detectives learned that Reyes and the victim were arguing when the 38-year-old man locked himself into a room at their home. Reyes is alleged to have pried open the door with a knife and then stabbed her boyfriend when he exited the room.

The man walked away from the home and summoned police.

Reyes was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center with bond set at $10,000. She has since posted bail.
