LAS CRUCES (KRQE) – One New Mexico man is wanted for threatening to kill his wife.

He tried to disguise himself with a blond wig but it didn’t fool police.

On Sunday, police say Arthur Orozco showed up at the home of his estranged wife in Las Cruces. He allegedly brandished a knife and threatened her and her children.

Orozco was gone by the time police arrived but they tracked him down on Thursday despite the blonde locks.

He’s charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
