Man shot by police faces assault charges

ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – The man shot and wounded by a Roswell police officer last week is out of the hospital and is now facing charges.

Police say Alonzo Perez, 34, is charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer and aggravated assault against a household member.

Last Thursday, police say Perez charged at a woman and her two young children with a knife.

Officers arrived after a dramatic 911 call from a pregnant woman inside the home during the incident.

Perez was shot by an officer after the officer’s stun gun didn’t stop him.
