ANTHONY, NM- An Anthony man is wanted for allegedly beating his ex-wife last weekend.
Police say Victor Filerio, 21, waited until his ex-wife’s boyfriend left her home when he allegedly broke into her home, beat her in the head with a rock, and attempted to strangle her.
The woman reportedly tried to call 911 when Filerio first gained entry to the home, but Filerio allegedly grabbed the phone from the victim, preventing her from completing the call.
Filerio is charged with aggravated battery on a household member, aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, and interference with communication.
Investigators say they have reason to believe he may have fled to Mexico. Anyone who might have information on Filerio’s whereabouts is asked to call the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department at (575) 525-8894. Anonymous tips can also be called in to Las Cruces CrimeStoppers at 1 (800) 222-8477.
