Police: Convicted felon accused of assaulting wife, possessing firearms
By: Jesse Martinez
LAS CRUCES, N.M. A convicted felon was arrested Sunday after on charges of abusing his wife, police said.
Steven Robert Hejmanowski was accused of grabbing and throwing his wife after an argument in their home in the 1400 block of Alamo Street.
When police arrived to the home, officers found Hejmanowski has several firearms at his home, including two shotguns, a rifle and a semiautomatic pistol, police said.
Hejmanowski, 28, was previously convicted of a crime nearly 10 years ago, and state law forbids felons to possession firearms within 10 years of a conviction, police said.
Hejmanowski purchased the guns between June 2012 and December 2013, police said.
He was charged with one count of battery against a household member and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. He was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center and has posted bail.
