A Las Vegas man allegedly beat up his girlfriend near the Tecolote River on Sunday morning. He left, with her there alone along the river, authorities said.
At one point, the state police received a call that a woman was found dead along the river. Minutes later, dispatchers were told that the woman was actually sleeping.
The boyfriend, Eric Sena, 24, was charged with aggravated battery against a household member, a third-degree felony. He and his girlfriend had apparently been staying in his pickup truck near the river.
