ALBUQUERQUE, NM – The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office criticizes the justice system after a suspect released by a judge allegedly assaulted a gas station worker in Albuquerque.

Cell phone video of a witness shows a man brutally attacking the woman and kicking her in the head before hitting another man who was trying to stop him. It happened at the Speedway on 4th Street two weeks ago.

The victim told MPs she confronted the man after he tried to buy alcohol. He did not show her his ID card and walked out with the alcohol without paying. Then he returned to the store and started beating her.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office shared the video on Facebook.

“We think it’s really important for people to know that something really terrible happened in our community and that there was a solution to this problem by keeping this offender in jail,” Jayme Fuller said, BCSO spokesperson. “Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. And an innocent woman was badly beaten while she was just trying to make a living.”

Advice from the community helped identify the suspect as Courtney McCalep, 35. Deputies arrested him on Tuesday for assault.

McCalep has a long history of arrests. The prison sent 25 of its 2006 passport photos to KOB 4.
