A suspect who attacked utility workers over the noise they were making, then caused an hours-long standoff, has been arrested.
The Water Authority says the employees were doing routine sewer maintenance Tuesday morning near Broadway and Trumbull.
They say that’s when 31-year-old Eric Mojarro approached them and hit one of them with the butt of a gun.
Albuquerque Police say Mojarro then barricaded himself in a home nearby.
He was arrested after several hours.
The worker who was hit was not seriously hurt.
