The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Department had its machete arrest story last week.
Today, city cops have theirs.
Santa Fe police say Erasmo Santos wasn’t happy on Monday when he heard whom his daughter was dating. So, according to a statement of probable cause for arrest, Santos invited the boyfriend over and attacked him with a machete.
Santos was arrested on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (on the boyfriend) and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a household member (on his daughter, who police say was cut while trying to take the machete from her dad). He told police he blacked out because he was so angry.
