Uneven Odds: Man Fires Back On Five Home Invaders

posted on November 9, 2016

Eighteen-year-old Diego Vallejo and four other men went to a home in Las Cruces, N.M., with the intent of breaking in and stealing property. They were armed and prepared—Vallejo had a hatchet in hand and another brandished a bayonet-style knife. 

They invaded the home and attacked a 37-year-old man living inside. He was stabbed multiple times before he was able to grab his handgun—with that, he fired and one bullet struck Vallejo in the leg. Two of the invaders tried to help Vallejo escape before giving up and leaving him in the driveway; the four then fled in a gray vehicle.

Vallejo was taken to a hospital for treatment. He’s since been charged with one count each of aggravated burglary, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy and criminal damage to property. Vallejo is now out on bail as the police continue their search for the rest of the suspects.
