[ARCHIVED] Man Suspected of Using Knife to Threaten Teenage Son

Edward Rodriguez Baeza Arrest

Las Cruces police arrested a man suspected of arming himself with a knife and threatening his 13-year-old son with it Wednesday evening.

Edward Rodriguez Baeza, 37, of the 5000 block of Avenida Del Sol, is charged with one count of child abuse. The charge is a third-degree felony.

The incident occurred sometime around 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, at Baeza’s residence. Investigators learned that, for some reason, Baeza was upset that his wife was not home and, in a rude manner, asked their children where she was. Baeza’s 13-year-old son was in the kitchen when Baeza allegedly armed himself with a knife, held it up to his son’s face and again asked, in a rude and vile manner, where the boy’s mother was.

Shortly after that, Baeza ordered all three children to get out of the house. They left and eventually called 911 to report the incident.

Baeza was arrested early Thursday morning and booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center where he’s initially being held without bond.
