ALBUQUEWRQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate who escaped from an Espanola-area hospital has been apprehended at a home in the Rio Arriba County community of Chimayo.

The FBI says FBI agents assisted by sheriff’s deputies arrested 27-year-old Ricky Martinez without incident Wednesday.

An FBI statement says Martine escaped Dec. 25 and was wanted on federal charges of assault with intent to commit murder and other crimes stemming from a September 2017 incident on Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo, on Sept. 2, 2017.

An arrest warrant was issued for Martinez after a federal grand jury indicted him on Jan. 10.
