FARMINGTON — Police continued to search Monday for a 35-year-old suspect in connection to Friday's stabbing in south Farmington.

Farmington police spokeswoman Georgette Allen said Monday that detectives would like to question Rose Beeson about the stabbing of her boyfriend, 33-year-old Jose Garcia.

Police were dispatched at 4 p.m. Friday to a home on South Butler Avenue after receiving reports Garcia was stabbed at the residence.

Police learned at the scene that Garcia was actually taken by a person to a residence two blocks north on Spruce Street. Paramedics found him there, and he was transported to San Juan Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Hospital spokeswoman Laura Werbner said Monday that Garcia had been treated and released from the hospital.

Farmington police Capt. Daryl Noon said Friday that detectives were seeking a warrant for Beeson on a charge of aggravated battery on a household member. But on Monday, Allen said the San Juan County District Attorney's Office will not sign off on the warrant until police question Beeson.
