According to reports, an Albuquerque man has been accused of striking a little three-year old boy with a hammer inside a local grocery store. The incident occurred around 1pm last Monday, in Smith's. The young boy was taken to UNM Hospital, where he had surgery for a fractured skull. He is currently still recovering. Meanwhile, the community has shown extensive support for the family.
36 year-old, C.S., allegedly has a history of violence. In 2008, he was convicted stabbing the business owner of a barbecue restaurant in the groin, serving two years for that crime. A few years later, he supposedly attempted to punch a nurse at Lovelace Hospital, who was injured in the wrist. He is presently still being tried for battery and providing a false identity.
The man's first court hearing for the alleged crime was last Tuesday, June 18th, but he waived his right and did not show up. The judge has set his bail at $150,000, as he is charged with aggravated battery with great bodily harm and two counts of aggravated assault (KASA). While his criminal lawyer declined to comment on his defense strategies, it has been speculated that he will use a mental illness plea at the next hearing.
C.S. also made headlines last year, when he was found in stuck in a marsh. He had been missing for three days before rescuers found him. Because of the extreme exposure from the sun, doctors had to amputate his legs.
