LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Authorities have dropped all charges against a Las Cruces woman accused of attacking her ex-boyfriend with a knife.

Dona Ana County Sheriff’s investigators say the decision was made because of a lack of victim cooperation.

They say 35-year-old Eligio Soto refused to give a statement to investigators in the case against Lisa Holguin.

As a result, the Third Judicial District Attorney’s Office has determined there isn’t enough evidence to proceed with prosecution.

A warrant had been issued for the 23-year-old Holguin’s arrest after she allegedly attacked Soto as he was eating breakfast on Dec. 21.

Holguin reportedly was armed with a set of brass knuckles that were also outfitted with a knife.

Sheriff’s officials say Holguin remains in custody on a warrant for failure to appear.
