Clayton SennALBUQUERQUE, NM — Police arrested a man in a wheelchair after witnesses say he hit a 3-year-old in the head with a hammer while inside an Albuquerque grocery store.

Police and firefighters were responded to a Smith’s grocery store Monday after receiving a call about a 3-year-old boy bleeding from the head. The boy’s stepfather said he heard his wife scream then watched as Clayton Senn hit the boy in the head with a hammer. The stepfather went after Senn, who is confined to a wheelchair, and had to be restrained by witnesses until officers arrived.

“Witnesses say they had to try to restrain the child’s father prior to police arrival because the father was obviously so upset about what happened to his child that he was trying to get at the offender,” said Tasia Martinez with Albuquerque Police.

Witnesses at the scene told police that Senn didn’t just hit the 3-year-old, that he had also chased after two other children, both under the age of 5, but neither of them were hurt. The injured boy, Jordan Romero, was transported to University of New Mexico Hospital. Although he suffered a fractured skull, he is expected to make a full recovery.

Detectives say that they do not know what motivated Senn’s actions, and that he isn’t talking to them. “He wouldn’t even make eye contact with me, refused to say anything,” Detective Brian Crafton said.

This isn’t the first time Senn has made the news. In 2011, he was found in a riverbed where he had been stuck for three days. The resulting frostbite he received is the reason why he ended up losing his legs and being confined to a wheelchair. After being rescued, police would learn that Senn is a transient wanted on a felony warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Senn would end up pleading guilty to the aggravated battery charge in 2010, but would have another court date this past week after he was accused of beating a health care worker. Senn is currently in jail facing new charges of aggravated battery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
