NM: Hatchet Man out of Hospital, Faces Multiple Charges
LAS CRUCES, N.M. — An 18-year-old man faces multiple charges after he was shot by a man he attacked during a home invasion robbery, police said.
Diego Vallejo, 18, and four other men went to a home on the 300 block of Keathley Drive on Oct. 26 with the intent of breaking into it and stealing property, police said.
Vallejo had a hatchet while another person was carrying a bayonet-style knife, police said.
The group kicked in the front door and attacked a 37-year-old man who lived here. The victim was stabbed several times before he grabbed a handgun, police said.
