ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (KRQE) – A 17-year-old is in custody for a crime the district attorney says was motivated by hate.
According to District Attorney John Sugg, Alamogordo police came across three juveniles attacking a man on June 13 at a Dollar General. Authorities believe the victim was targeted because he has several disabilities.
The 17-year-old suspect will be held behind bars until trial. There is no information at this time on if the other juveniles are charged.
