Teen accused of making threats with machete arrested again


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The teen accused of threatening people at an Albuquerque grocery store with a machete has been arrested again, according to juvenile detention center records.

Albuquerque Public Schools’ Police Chief Steve Gallegos, 16-year-old Keisean Anderson showed up to Madison Middle School Wednesday and was asked to leave but came back on Thursday.Chief Gallegos said staff asked him to leave again and say he ended up at Sandia High School. There, Anderson was told he couldn’t be on campus because he wasn’t a student.

According to APS, that’s when Anderson got angry and tried to strike a school resource officer with his hands.

He was arrested and taken to the juvenile detention center. Anderson is facing charges for assault on a peace officer, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

In April, Anderson was arrested and accused of threatening people at the Albertsons on Eubank with a machete. APD says that is the call that Officer Johnathan McDonnell was headed to when he crashed into a family at Eubank and Indian School, killing 6-year-old Joel Anthony.

APS also confirms that Anderson was a former student at Sandia but the district did not say why he showed up at Maddison Middle School.
