A Hernandez woman was allegedly assaulted on Oct. 23, after a woman came to her mother's house and accused her of having an affair with her boyfriend.

Connie Sanchez, 55, told Española Police Officer Abenicio Maes, that she was at her mother’s house and was sleeping when her mother called her to the door.

“Connie advised Betty that she didn’t want to see anyone,” he wrote in his incident report. “Connie finally got up and went to the dor (sic) where Betty was speaking with a woman, later identified as Candy Martinez.”

Martinez allegedly accused Sanchez of having an affair with her boyfriend Vernon Ortega. Sanchez told the woman she is not seeing Ortega and they are just friends.

“Connie stated that Candy struck her causing a scratch on her upper right chest/neck area,” Maes wrote. “Connie stated Candy pushed her, Connie walked inside. She stated Candy left the area in and (sic) older white car that was occupied by several people. No license plate was given for Candy’s vehicle.”

Maes went to the Vista del Rio Apartments because Sanchez told him that she knew Martinez was staying there. He went to the complex but could not find the car or Martinez.
