A man accused of beating his girlfriend and threatening his children is still nowhere to be found.

Sheriff’s deputies in Dona Ana County say Jorge Martinez was angry with the woman because she did not wake him up in time for work.

They say Martinez slapped her and then threatened to cut the throats of their 3-year-old daughter and infant son.

The incident occurred on Tuesday.

There is a warrant out for Martinez’s arrest.
