Las Cruces police: Woman cut, stabbed her boyfriend in car

Las Cruces police department

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) – Las Cruces police say a woman is accused of using knives and a chain saw to stab and cut her boyfriend after restraining him inside his car.

Police spokesman Dan Trujillo says it’s unclear why 30-year-old Kayla Martinez Bailey allegedly attacked the boyfriend, who was hospitalized with wounds reported to not be life-threatening.

Trujillo says the victim suffered multiple stab wounds, two bite wounds and two lacerations from being struck with a chain saw during the incident Monday. Trujillo says police reports don’t indicate whether the chain saw was running.

Trujillo says Bailey ran when a passer-by approached the car after seeing a struggle inside.

Bailey remained jailed Wednesday on suspicion of kidnapping and aggravated battery.
