David Alcon

Democrat David Alcon had been running for the open District 2 congressional seat in New Mexico until two weeks ago when a warrant was issued out of Santa Fe for his arrest. Since then, he’s been hiding from police. They found him in an apartment in Albuquerque on Friday.

Alcon is accused of stalking by a woman who claims he started texting her after seeing him at a Halloween party. She has known Alcorn for a decade and had received texts in the past, but these were getting more aggressive. He texted that he loved her and wanted to have children with her. He also sent her a picture of his genitals. When he texted that he was outside of her home, she called police.

Albuquerque Police were called to the Villa De San Felipe Apartments for a welfare check around 3:30 p.m. on Friday. APD did not elaborate on what happened when they got to the scene, just that Alcon was arrested. He’s also not facing any new charges out of Albuquerque, according to jail records.

It is unknown whether Alcorn will continue his congressional bid following the arrest or if the Democrats will try to replace him with someone not in jail.
