Man peered through window at teens, is in critical condition at UNMH, police say
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —Albuquerque police are conducting an investigation into a battery that left a man in critical condition in the southwest part of the city. A caller said the man beaten was naked.
The man was left near the intersection of Corriz Drive and Garnet Avenue SW, according to Albuquerque Police Department’s Violent Crimes Detectives.
The incident occurred at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday, when a caller told 911 a naked man was caught peering into the window of their home, watching the caller’s 13- and 15-year-old daughters inside the residence.
Katrina Chavez, who lives in the home, said the man made noises. She also said her son was punched by the man when he ran outside and told the peeping Tom to leave.
Police said three men from inside the residence chased the naked man away from the property before a fight ensued. When officers arrived they found the naked male subject badly beaten in the street.
The man was transported to University of New Mexico Hospital and is in unstable, critical condition as of noon Thursday.
The three men on scene were questioned and have been released, according to police. The investigation is ongoing. No one is under arrest.
The three men were the father and brother of the two female juveniles and a friend of the brother. Their ages were 29, 19 and 19, respectively. The District Attorney is working with detectives to determine possible charges pending for the three detained men. ..Source.. by Anna Velasquez
