LCPD: Father accused of stabbing daughter’s boyfriend

Las Cruces police arrested a man accused of stabbing his daughter’s boyfriend Sunday morning.

Simon Ontiveros, 55, of the 1000 block of Lees Drive, is charged with one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Police learned about the stabbing shortly after 10 a.m. Sunday, April 7, 2019 when a 26-year-old man arrived at Mountainview Regional Medical Center with a stab wound to his upper-right thigh.

Investigators learned the victim and his girlfriend live with her parents on Lees Drive. At about 8:30 a.m. Sunday, the 26-year-old man started arguing with his girlfriend’s father, who ordered him to leave the home. The two went into the front yard where the argument escalated.

Police said Ontiveros used a kitchen knife to stab the 26-year-old man, later transported to the hospital by his girlfriend.

Ontiveros was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center where he is initially being held without bond
