[ARCHIVED] Woman Arrested in Stabbing Incident

Brandee Martinez Mug Shot (2)

Police arrested a Las Cruces woman suspected in the Monday evening stabbing of another woman on the 2400 block of east Idaho Avenue.

Brandee Martinez, 34, is charged with one third-degree felony count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and a misdemeanor count of resisting, evading or obstructing an officer.

About 6:40 p.m. Monday, May 3, Las Cruces police were dispatched to the report of a stabbing at Martinez’s home, on the 2400 block of east Idaho Avenue. Officers met a woman with a laceration to her arm.

Investigators learned the woman was looking for her boyfriend and believed he might be at Martinez’s home. The woman knocked on Martinez’s door but received no answer. A short while later, as the woman was leaving, Martinez exited the home. Investigators learned the two women exchanged words and Martinez, armed with a knife, allegedly swung the knife at the woman several times.

The victim received the laceration during that time. The victim’s injuries were not life-threatening.

Las Cruces police attempted to make contact with Martinez, but she refused to exit her home. LCPD’s SWAT and Hostage Negotiation teams were activated and Martinez was ultimately taken into custody Tuesday morning.

Martinez was arrested and booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center. She is initially being held without bond.
