FARMINGTON — The suspect in a triple stabbing in Bloomfield earlier this month was arrested Tuesday evening.

Kenneth Alcon

Kenneth Alcon, 24, of Blanco was taken into custody around 6 p.m. Tuesday at a mobile home park located at 1310 Sanchez Lane in Bloomfield, according to Bloomfield Police Officer Jeremy Duran.

Alcon is facing three charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to the criminal complaint.

He was wanted in connection to a multiple stabbing incident that took place around 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 3 in the 300 block of North Frontier Street.

Duran said all three male victims have been released from the San Juan Regional Medical Center

One of the victims had three stab wounds in his back, and another had been stabbed five times, according to the affidavit. The victim with five stab wounds also suffered a collapsed lung.

The affidavit states one of the victims had identified Alcon as the person who allegedly stabbed him.

Members of the Chicano Pride gang also were allegedly involved in the incident, according to the affidavit.

Bloomfield police detectives learned of Alcon’s possible location earlier on Tuesday. They conducted surveillance of the home with the assistance of the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office, Duran said.

A reverse 911 call was made to nearby residents to shelter in place as officers attempted to lure Alcon out of the mobile home.

Alcon did not immediately respond to commands from police to exit the home but left the residence about 15 minutes later, Duran said.

Alcon was being being held today in the San Juan County Detention Center without bond, Duran said.

A preliminary examination is set for Jan. 5 in Aztec Magistrate Court, according to court records.
