Women in Santa Fe and Albuquerque need to be more careful. Channel 7 reports that in the last 30 days there have been four different instances of a man walking into a home and either groping or exposing himself to a female who was home alone. The most recent incident involved the criminal entering a bathroom where a female teen was home alone taking a shower.
These kind of incidents are often preliminary to a criminal taking it to the next level. So far, whoever is involved in committing these crimes is still on the loose and may be emboldened to go farther in order to gain additional press or notoriety.
We highly recommend that in addition to locking doors and increasing situational awareness that females (and males alike) seek out both physical hand to hand defensive training and firearm training.
In New Mexico the law requires that students take a 2 day course full of great safety training and gun handling skills to prepare them to be able to carry a concealed firearm on or about the person. These concealed carry classes are available widely and we provide classes in both Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
