Hobbs Man Accused of Pulling Rifle Out on a Family

HOBBS, NM (KWES) -

A man in Hobbs is accused of pulling a rifle out on a family.

23-year-old Jose Peraza-Duran is facing charges of aggravated assault and abuse of a child.

The criminal complaint says a family was driving when Peraza-Duran cut them off.

They drove for a bit and Peraza-Duran made a sudden stop and got out of his pickup.

A woman in the other car asked him if he had a problem.

That's when Peraza-Duran grabbed a hunting rifle, pointed it at the family and said, “because your children are in the car, I'll put the rifle away.”

Peraza-Duran was caught a couple of days later.

Police say they found ammo in his pickup.
