On May 26, 2018, at approximately 6:00 p.m., Newport Police Officers were dispatched to a disturbance at the Agate Height Apartments located on NE 60th St. Initial information reported was that a six year old boy had ran to a neighbor’s apartment and told them his mother stabbed him.

Responding Officers located the juvenile victim in the neighbor’s apartment and confirmed that he was suffering from multiple stab wounds. Officers secured the scene and paramedics continued rendering aid to the child.
Officers identified the mother of the child as 34-year-old Nemoria Villagomez, of Newport. Officers also learned that Villagomez had another small child in the apartment with her.
Officers went to Villagomez’ apartment and attempted contact with her. After receiving no response, officers entered the apartment to check the welfare of Villagomez and her child. Officers located a large amount of blood in the apartment living room. Officers searched the apartment and located Villagomez and a small child in a bedroom.
Villagomez was detained without incident, and her child was transferred to the care of paramedics. Villagomez was transported to the Newport Police Department for questioning.
