Police say Keisean Anderson, now 16 years old, threatened employees with the machete at an Albertsons. An Albuquerque police officer responded to this incident when his cruiser collided with a civilian vehicle at Eubank and Indian School, resulting in the death of a 6-year-old boy.

On Thursday, Anderson was arrested again for assault on a peace officer, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. Anderson allegedly assaulted an APS officer at Sandia High School during the first week back at school. The security officer asked Anderson, a former student, to leave when Anderson got belligerent and allegedly hit the officer.

Anderson is currently held at a juvenile detention center on a no-bond hold.
