EDDY COUNTY, N.M. - An Eddy County man has been arrested for a stabbing that took place in Carlsbad on Monday.
37-year-old Eric Hoggs is facing felony charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and intimidating a witness.
Officers were called out to an RV Park in the 200 block of west fiesta.
That's where they found Angelo Valenza.
He was taken to the hospital with multiple stab wounds.
Valenza said he had made a deal to trade cell phones for marijuana with Hoggs.
Instead, the two got into an argument.
That's when Hoggs reportedly broke a vodka bottle over Valenza's head and started stabbing him.
