Assault Cases Rise in Santa Fe

SANTA FE IS SEEING A SPIKE IN AGGRAVATED ASSAULT AND AGGRAVATED BATTERY CASES. THE SANTA FE NEW MEXICAN REPORTS THERE WERE 171 CASES IN THE FIRST FOUR MONTHS OF THE YEAR…A 30 PERCENT INCREASE FROM THE SAME PERIOD OF 2017.

POLICE SAY IT’S DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE WHY THERE HAVE BEEN MORE CASES SINCE SO MANY CRIMES FALL INTO THOSE CATEGORIES. THE NEWS IN SANTA FE ISN’T ALL BAD, THOUGH. THERE WERE NO HOMICIDES BETWEEN JANUARY AND APRIL…COMPARED TO THREE AT THIS POINT LAST YEAR.
