ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A woman faces battery charges after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend with a grilling fork during an argument over a camping trip the pair planned on taking, according to a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court.

Alicia Garcia, 28, allegedly hurled kitchen utensils at her boyfriend during the confrontation at an apartment complex near Osuna and Second Street around 3 a.m. Friday, according to the complaint.

The boyfriend ran to the neighbors house “in fear of his life” after Garcia stabbed him in the upper right arm with the kitchen-ware, according to the complaint.

Garcia’s child was sitting on the couch about 10 feet from the stabbing during the argument, according to the complaint.

Garcia was charged with aggravated battery on a household member and child abuse, and was booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center on $20,000 bail.
