Roswell man accused of attempted murder in stabbing case


ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) – A Roswell man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing outside an apartment two months ago.

Roswell police announced Friday that 21-year-old Anthony Ray Romero has been booked into the Chaves County Detention Center on a $25,000 cash-only bond.

They say he’s being held on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.

Police say an arrest warrant was obtained Thursday following an investigation into the March 22 stabbing.

They say Romero got into a verbal altercation with a 24-year-old Roswell man and it led to a fight outside the apartment.

Police say Romero had a knife and allegedly stabbed the victim in the chest, abdomen, back and left hand.

They say the man is recovering after being treated at a Texas hospital. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
