A resident with the best of intentions made a mistake with a Sunland Park Transient.
She invited him to her home on Apperson and he became belligerent and wouldn’t leave. She had to call the police. He returned Tuesday morning and started an altercation with the homeowner. The police were again called and he took off, but he was captured down the street. No one really knew what he was capable of doing, and Apperson Elementary School was put into “lockdown” mode.
The transient was arrested, the actual charges are not yet known.
