Las Cruces - The man wanted for a Sunday stabbing in Las Cruces is under arrest.

Jesse Israel Duran, 34, was found at his home Monday evening.

Police say he initially refused to comply with officers and barricaded himself inside the home.

Duran eventually gave up and was charged with one count of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm.

Detectives learned that an ongoing disagreement between neighbors led to a physical confrontation and Duran stabbing the victim once in his chest.

The 33-year-old victim from Sunday's stabbing remains at University Medical Center of El Paso.

His injuries are not life-threatening and his condition is improving.
