On August 1st, 2022, Albuquerque Police were flagged down near the 9000 block of Central Ave NE by a mother with a 9-month-old baby. The mother indicated that a man had battered her and her baby outside a daycare. The man was identified as Jonah Gurule (AKA Jonah Padilla).
According to a criminal complaint, the adult victim stated she was outside the daycare when Gurule began to follow her. She stated she had her daughter in her arms when Gurule began yelling obscenities at her. He then threw two rocks at the mother/daughter and then approached her and pushed her to the ground. Gurule then began kicking and punching the mother and daughter while they were on the ground. The mother covered her daughter to prevent her from being struck.
