Glorieta, New Mexico - Selena Velasquez, 17, is in hot water after being accused of trying to extort $1500 out of a 43-year-old man she allegedly had consensual sex with.
Velasquez met the man at a Cinco de Mayo party, and the two engaged in some casual sex. After their whirlwind rendezvous, Velasquez supposedly told the man she would call the police and claim he raped her if he didn’t give her three payments of $500 over the next three Fridays.
She then went all psycho on his ass and started showing up at his work, as well sending him text messages threatening violence on him and his daughter. The man contacted police who had him call her to get audio recording where they heard “the suspect clearly threatened and extorted the victim.”
The man agreed to pay Velasquez and made plans to meet at a local Wal-Mart where he would give her the first payment. Instead of $500 bucks, she was welcomed by a swarm of police officers and was arrested at the scene.…Continue Reading
ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Would-be kidnapper David Jesus Hernandez is in custody after a New Mexico mother, alerted by a group of teenagers that he’d just taken her 4-year-old daughter, chased the man down, ramming his vehicle with her own.
The woman, who wasn’t identified, apparently didn’t know that the 31-year-old kidnapper had shoved the girl out of the car before the chase began.
“Albuquerque police Chief Ray Schultz said neighbors began yelling, which is what made the suspect push the child out of his car,” KOAT TV reported.
KQRE reported that the mother was in contact with Albuquerque police during the hot-civilian-pursuit, which started shortly after six p.m. on Indian School Rd, near the family’s apartment.
The chase lasted all the way through the North Valley and finished in the Southeast Heights, when the feisty mom went all Grand-Child-Theft-Auto on Hernandez, and slammed her car into his. Hernandez abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot.
Police launched a manhunt which included more than two dozen officers going door-to-door in efforts to locate Hernandez, as well as a helicopter equipped with heat-seeking capabilities.…Continue Reading
Santa Fe, NM - An 18-year-old high school student claims he was raped by his horticulture teacher, 31-year-old Jennifer Vigil, in her classroom at Pojoaque Valley High School.
The student states Vigil pressured him into sex acts when he turned in an assignment to her after school. She allegedly locked the classroom door and said, ”You’re not leaving until I get something from you.” He initially refused, but Vigil agreed to let him leave if he let her perform a sex act on him.
Vigil admits having sex with him in her classroom, but insists the sex was consensual. However the student told police that the idea of sex with her was “disgusting.” Harsh. Vigil claims he requested oral sex from her and that led to intercourse, and he again requested to have sex with her at a later date and she agreed. He took a picture with his cellphone of her blowing him and showed it to police.
These stories are now a dime a dozen; male teenage student, attractive-ish married female teacher, sex, everybody gasps thinking a woman would know better, men everywhere ask, “Where were these teachers when I was a student?” and the overwhelming response is, “You were too ugly” .…Continue Reading
Carlsbad, NM - Courtney Hutchins, 22, was arrested for child endangerment after climbing over a barricade with her 3 year old son, Ethan, to get a closer look at a bobcat. Apparently she got a little too close as the bobcat was able to scratch the boy’s head badly enough to require 8 skull staples.
Hutchins, her brother LeeVon, and her son were at Living Desert Zoo & Gardens State Park when they decided to climb over a 40-inch high railing. Once over the outer barrier, they coaxed the cats to the inner fence and pet them. A bobcat reached through the chainlink, grabbed the boy’s head and pulled him towards it, inflicting serious head wounds on the 3 year old.
Hutchins told police she did not see any of the many signs warning against being dangerously stupid. She also said she did not know the word “barrier” before she heard police use it.
Feelings of anger and/or homicidal ideations are a natural first reaction to learning how careless and unconcerned for her own child’s welfare this woman could be. A little snooping on her Facebook, however, reveals a lot.…Continue Reading
Sante Fe, NM – Back in February, we reported on 27-year-old Daniel Anaya, the Dillard’s shoe salesman accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend and trying to chew off her big toe. He’s now been arrested again, charged with doing the exact same thing.
Anaya first made the news after he broke into his ex girlfriend’s apartment, held her down and proceeded to take bites out of her toenail and toe flesh with “a blank look on his face.” Anaya was facing charges of burglary, false imprisonment, interference with communications and aggravated battery against a household member.
That case was was dismissed because a witness or prosecutor didn’t show up to court. I’m going to go out on a limb and bet that the ex-girlfriend didn’t show up, and that she is now regretting that decision.
After filing a restraining order against Anaya, the victim moved from Santa Fe to Albuquerque. This did little to deter Anaya, who tracked her down and walked into the woman’s residence on April 1st. His ex informed him that he he needed to get out and that he was violating a restraining order.…Continue Reading
Farmington police recently released a surveillance photo of a man they believe has ejaculated or tossed semen onto at least two women at a local Walmart on separate occasions.
The alleged semen slinger has been described as a Native American man, 5 feet 3 inches to 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing approximately 165 pounds. Police say it appears as if the man chooses his victims at random.
“We think he’s been doing this since at least 2010, and he may not have stopped,” Farmington Det. Corp. Kenneth Raybon reported. “These are just the only incidents that have been reported.”
That’s a lot of batter…
“The attacks happened on March 29, 2010 and Nov. 8, 2012,” Raybon continued. “We were able to tie the two instances together with evidence that recently came to light.”
Let’s not all panic and rush to Walmart at the same time, ladies….…Continue Reading
Sante Fe, NM – Police have arrested 27-year-old Daniel Anaya after they say he broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home and bit off the tip of her big toe.
Police say that after Anaya broke into his ex’s apartment, he begged her to let him smell her feet. When the woman refused Anaya’s request, he slammed her against a wall. When she tried to call police, he took the phone away from her and threw it.
Then, according to the arrest warrant, the woman “begged him not to hurt her” as Anaya held her down, took off her socks and shoes, then proceeded to take bites out of her toenail and toe flesh with “a blank look on his face.”
She was finally able to kick free and hobble to a neighbor’s house for help. Anaya had already fled the scene by time police arrived, but was picked up on Wednesday. Anaya is facing charges of burglary, false imprisonment, interference with communications and aggravated battery against a household member.
Anaya is a college student with no criminal record who works in the shoe department of a local Dillard’s.…Continue Reading
According to the police report, 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego walked into his parents’ bedroom shortly after midnight on Saturday and retrieved a .22 caliber rifle from the closet. His father was not home at the time but his mother, 40-year-old Sara Griego, was sleeping alongside Nehemiah’s 9-year-old brother, Zephania.
Nehemiah took aim and shot his mother in the head as she was sleeping. His brother woke up and did not believe Nehemiah had killed their mother, so Nehemiah told police he lifted her head to show his brother her bloody face. When his brother began crying, Nehemiah shot him in the head as well.
He then walked into the bedroom of his two sisters, 5-year-old Jael and 2-year old Angelina, who were in their beds crying. He then shot them both in the head. Afterwards, he retrieved an AR-15 and hid in a downstairs bathroom for hours, waiting on his father to arrive home.…Continue Reading
The alleged mastermind behind the bizarro plan is convicted killer and apparent Bieber fan, 45-year-old Dana Martin – a man serving two life sentences for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old Vermont girl back in 2000.
According to police, the aged “Belieber” began to formulate his evil plan after Bieber “slighted” him by refusing to respond to any of his messages. Oh, and did I mention Martin has Bieber’s face tatted on his leg? Yeah…
Martin apparently hooked up with another prisoner, 41-year-old Mark Staake, and fed him some bullshit about how he had access to a metric shit ton of money, acreage in Vermont and some connections to some Chinese gang in New York. Not sure what Chinese gangs have to do with anything, but whatever. If Staake wanted a piece of Martin’s fame and fortune, he just had to do one simple thing………
KILL THE BIEBER.…Continue Reading
Las Cruces, NM — A 16-month-old girl was fatally attacked by a family pit bull Tuesday. Witnesses said the girl’s grandmother was accidentally shot by a neighbor trying to help the toddler. The witness accounts alleviated initial fears that a pit bull armed with a pistol and an opposable thumb was on the loose in New Mexico.
Around 11:30 a.m., Police were called by a neighbor reporting the girl’s attack and the grandmother, 52, crying for help. The 2-year-old pit bull reportedly attacked the girl in the backyard of her grandparents’ home. The grandmother was also attacked trying to help the girl.
The 69-year-old neighbor who called 911 then retrieved a .45-caliber handgun and went to help the grandmother and granddaughter. Police said the neighbor fired several shots at the dog, and one of them accidentally hit the grandmother’s leg.
“A lot of [the injuries were] to the top of her head and the side of her face,” neighbor Chris Wallard – who performed CPR – said. “I was really scared.…Continue Reading
Albuquerque, NM - New Mexico sheriff’s deputies have arrested a man suspected of impersonating a police officer in multiple jurisdictions around Albuquerque. This after reports of a self-described “undercover officer” making suspicious traffic stops and having an odd confrontation with some teenage boys.
Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies reported arresting Joseph Hannah, 34, after two women reported separate incidents of being pulled over by a man in a black mustang – complete with flashing police lights. The man, later identified as Hannah, reportedly showed the women his gun, told them he worked undercover, and then proceeded to flirt with them.
Investigators said that Hannah also stopped his Mustang – with activated lights – at an Albuquerque home where a group of teens were playing ball out front.
“He showed me a badge and a gun so I bought it,” said one of the boys, age 15, of Hannah’s claim to be a police officer.
The boy described the encounter with Hannah – who initially remained in his vehicle – as ‘light-hearted’ but then becoming ‘scary’ when Hannah became irritated.…Continue Reading
Alamogordo, NM — New Mexico divorce lawyer and past Otero County Bar Association President Raymond Van Arnam has been jailed after pleading no contest for helping a client break into a house where her estranged husband was living.
At the time of the Oct. 28, 2011 incident, Van Arnam was representing Melissa Stonecipher in her petition for divorce from her husband. Stonecipher was separated from her husband at the time of the incident. A temporary domestic order posted on the front window of her estranged husband’s residence stated the client needed to schedule a time to get her belongings. The video shows Van Arnam arrive at his client’s former home with several people where he pounds and kicks the front door.
In a 911 call to the Alamogordo Department of Public Safety, the victim, Stonecipher’s husband, stated that his estranged wife, Stonecipher, and her attorney, Van Arnam, were attempting to forcefully enter into his personal residence. The surveillance video showed Stonecipher’s husband and a roommate leaving the residence. Van Arnam is shown rapping on the driver window with a lollipop and then speaking to the estranged husband.…Continue Reading
Albuquerque, NM – U.S. Marshals tracked Moses Sparks, 26, to a trailer park near Mullins, South Carolina on Thursday. Sparks was wanted on charges of criminal sexual penetration, kidnapping and aggravated assault of his then girlfriend after allegedly breaking into her New Mexico home in September and beating and raping her.
Sparks reportedly tried to run last Thursday night as the arrest team approached. The team – made up of Marion County drug agents, Marion County Sheriff’s deputies and deputy US Marshals – apprehended him. Authorities entering the trailer reportedly found an active drug manufacturing operation – as well as the woman whom Sparks had allegedly raped in New Mexico.
Sparks – who had been on probation for kidnapping and aggravated battery at the time of the alleged rape – was given an additional charge of manufacturing a controlled substance. His girlfriend was charged with manufacturing a controlled substance and harboring a fugitive. An additional charge of being a complete idiot is presumably still pending.Continue Reading
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — I hate a thief, I truly do. But sometimes, depending on what was stolen, you really need to evaluate your best course of action. For example, kidnapping a teen at gunpoint because his friend stole your weed is probably not in your best interest.
Just ask 19-year-old Jonathon Escobar. Police say he was with a couple of other teens smoking pot when one of them grabbed his drugs and ran. Enraged, Escobar allegedly held a gun to a 14-year-old passenger’s head and told him he was now responsible for paying for the drugs his friend just ran off with.
The younger boy told Escobar to relax and to take him to his mother’s house where he would get him his money. The thing is, the boy’s mother lived inside Kitland Air Force Base. So when they arrived at the security gate, the younger boy jumped out of the car and air force security apprehended Escobar.
He’s now out of his drugs as well as facing charges of kidnapping, robbery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.…Continue Reading
Albuquerque, NM - Now-former Albuquerque Police Department Officer Matt Kindle has gotten himself in a bit of hot water after being recorded in a hotel room offering to help a prostitute with her legal trouble in exchange for sex.
According to police, Kindle had been communicating by phone with a prostitute who had left town and he had apparently never met. He reportedly offered to help get her out of a criminal case if she’d come back to town and meet him. That woman, instead, called police. The result was APD replacing the prostitute with an informant and setting up a sting.
“It’s my lunch so I have time to chitchat,” Kindle – in full uniform – can be heard saying at the start the video. …and chit-chat they did. The video captures his entire lunch hour and a some 20 minutes longer while he an the informant discuss a range of topics. The topics included the fact that the informant doesn’t look quite like he had been told.
“Heather said you were really skinny when you left?” Kindle said to the woman.…Continue Reading
Christopher Castillo, 38, was booked on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping and tampering with evidence Monday after allegedly traveling from his home in San Jose to his mother’s home in Las Cruces with the intent of killing the woman.
Police responded to the woman’s home after receiving a 911 call from a neighbor. The neighbor reported seeing a man, later identified as Castillo, wearing a white dress, high heels, stockings and a wig and walking toward the woman’s home. A short time later, the neighbor heard screams and went to investigate. When she stepped into the victim’s home, she saw Castillo standing over the woman, baseball bat in hand.
The neighbor reportedly yelled out, causing Castillo to flee. The neighbor then helped the victim to her feet and out of the house.
Police apprehended Castillo a couple blocks away from the home. By that time, he had changed into a pair of khaki pants, a white shirt and tennis shoes.…Continue Reading
PECOS, N.M. – Two teenage boys have been suspended from school and are facing multiple criminal charges after their bullying of an 8-year-old cousin was caught on a school bus surveillance camera.
In the video, the two 14-year-old boys can be seen spitting into the kid’s mouth on two occasions, giving him several wedgies, sitting on his head and pushing him between the seats. The bus driver didn’t initially view any of the bullying, which reportedly lasted 20 minutes, because the victim was too short for him to see and all three involved were sitting at the back of the bus.
The driver reported the incident to the school principal after reviewing the surveillance footage, who then notified police. The victim said he did not report his cousins’ bullying because he thought he would get into trouble. He found out how wrong he was when the two teens were charged with battery, assault, harassment and criminal sexual contact of a minor.
You can watch the some of the video here and to be honest I don’t know what is more disturbing; the bullying that was captured on camera, or reporter Liz McKernan’s shirt.…Continue Reading
According to police, the two had been playing Monopoly with Chavez’s 10-year-old grandson before the alleged poking occurred. The boy told police the couple began arguing because his grandma believed her boyfriend was cheating at the game. Though police have yet to specify how he was cheating, my guess is that he either palmed Boardwalk and Park Place, or was pilfering 100′s from the bank.
Fortunately, the boy didn’t witness any of the ensuing bloodshed…the real violence started after he was sent to bed.
After the grandkiddo was tucked in for the night, it was on. Chavez allegedly knocked the boyfriend upside the skull with a glass bottle. Police say she then grabbed hold of a butcher knife and proceeded to repeatedly stab the 48-year-old man, causing injuries to the top of his head, neck, left eyebrow and right wrist area.
When police arrived, Chavez mentioned that her boyfriend had pushed her and she asked him to leave her apartment.…Continue Reading
Benito, recently separated from his wife of 15 years, apparently posted a status update last week about it being the anniversary of his mother’s death. And, as one would expect, many of his friends stopped by to express their condolences and “like” his depressing as fcuk comment. The fanatical ones will “like” anydamnthing, won’t they?
Anyway, Benito grew angry when he realized his wife neglected to get all clicky with the like button. Whether she left the obligatory “Awwwwww…I’m so sorry *kiss/hug/rimjob*” comment is unknown at this point.
When the displeased and inebriated Benito arrived at the wife’s home on Monday to drop off their children, an argument over the woman’s apparent lack of compassion ensued.
“That’s amazing everyone ‘likes’ my status but you, you’re my wife,” he allegedly told her. “You should be the first one to ‘like’ my status.”
The woman told police Benito then pulled her hair – pussy move – and punched her in the cheek.…Continue Reading
Sante Fe, NM — Derrick Manuel, the bloody guy to the left, was brutally beaten by three men earlier this week after he accidentally hit a 5-year-old girl that darted in front of his vehicle in a grocery store parking lot.
As is apparent in the attached surveillance video, the car in which the child was riding stops in the middle of the parking lot. The girl jumps out, runs behind the vehicle and straight into the path of Manuel’s truck. When Manuel attempted to climb out of his truck to check on the child, three of the kiddos relatives jumped him.
“At one point, I was going to pass out,” said 49-year-old Manuel. “They were hitting my face, they were hitting me, hitting me.”
Both Manuel and the child were taken to the hospital for treatment and later released. No word on the girl’s injuries, but authorities said they were minor. Manuel suffered cuts, swelling and contusions to his face during the rumble, which police say had to be broken up by witnesses.…Continue Reading
