The couple suspected of attacking and stabbing a man early Tuesday morning near a homeless shelter have both been charged in the crime.

Jesse Rayos, 36, and Gianna Shreve, 18, each face felony counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and tampering with evidence.

Las Cruces police learned that Shreve took exception to the way a man handled her dog after it reportedly attacked him. About 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 7, Shreve and Rayos, her boyfriend, reportedly confronted the man and Rayos got into a physical confrontation with him.

Investigators learned that during the confrontation, as Rayos restrained the man, Shreve used a folding knife to stab the man’s leg. Sometime after that, Rayos is accused of arming himself with a machete and using it to strike the man.

The victim had a stab wound to his leg and visible injuries consistent with the attack. He was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Rayos and Shreve were booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center where they are initially being held without bond.
