SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – A crew member on a film set near Santa Fe has been charged with attacking a co-worker with a carving knife.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that 25-year-old Jaime Moreno-Ruelas, of Albuquerque, was booked this week on one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Santa Fe County sheriff’s deputies say the incident happened Wednesday at the Bonanza Creek Ranch south of the city.
Morena-Ruelas, a meat-cutter, had been arguing with the victim throughout the day.
The victim says Morena-Ruelas approached him and then attacked him with the knife.
According to the victim, the suspect slashed him in the right forearm and the left side of the torso.
Emergency responders treated him at the scene.
Morena-Ruelas is also wanted in California on an unrelated assault charge.
