Man arrested in Anthony stabbing


A man wanted in connection with a stabbing in Anthony two months ago is now behind bars.

According to a news release, Ezequiel Gonzales, 25, was arrested in El Paso on Wednesday.

As KTSM previously reported, the stabbing happened August 25 at a home on the 800 block of Golf Course Road.

Witnesses say a large gathering was taking place when a car drove up to the home at about 1 a.m.

According to investigators, one of the men inside the car went inside and began to argue with the victim, a 23-year-old man.

The argument became physical, which reportedly prompted Gonzales to get involved.

According to one witness, Gonzales then stabbed the man. The victim was taken to a hospital with several wounds to the torso, and has since been released.

Gonzales was charged with aggravated battery causing death or bodily harm. He was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center without bond.
