ALBUQUERQUE – Alexander M.M. Uballez, United States Attorney for the District of New Mexico, and Raul Bujanda, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Albuquerque Field Office, announced that Alex Julian appeared in federal court on an indictment charging him with assault with a dangerous weapon and assault resulting in serious bodily injury. Julian, 27, of Dulce, and an enrolled member of the Jicarilla Apache Nation, will remain in custody pending trial, which has not been scheduled.

According to the indictment, on Oct. 25, 2022, Julian assaulted John Doe with a knife and the assault resulted in serious bodily injury to John Doe.

An indictment is only an allegation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. If convicted, Julian faces up to 20 years in prison.

The Farmington Resident Agency of the FBI Albuquerque Field Office investigated this case with the assistance of the Jicarilla Apache Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy Trembley is prosecuting the case.
