Two Arrested After Man Pulls Knife at Strip Club
A man and woman from New Mexico were arrested after the man pulled a knife on a bouncer at the Golden Banana.
Police were called to the scene at the Route 1 strip club at 12:22 a.m. Jan. 31 by a bouncer who said a man pulled a knife on him. The bouncer said he was not attacked, however, and was just trying to break up an argument between the man and a blond female at the club.
The pair then left the club, walking south down the northbound side of Route 1, according to the bouncer.
The man was described as Portuguese, about 30 years old, with a goatee and wearing a leather jacket and glasses. He also bore a tattoo of the American flag on his neck.
Officer Michael Muse then located the female at Red's Kitchen & Tavern. It was unclear if the man was with her at the time, although Muse did arrest both of them eventually.
Luis Gonzalez, 44, of Mountainair, N.M., was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and Wendy Gonzalez, 48, of Belen, N.M., was charged with domestic assault and battery.
