KQRE-TV reported the suspect, 31-year-old Michael Chavez, evaded authorities for months until police arrested him last week. Chavez is charged with aggravated battery with great bodily harm. 
Chavez can be seen smiling in his booking photo. 
Anderson, however, isn't smiling. He told KQRE-TV he wants the public to know how dangerous Chavez is. 
"With this irate thinking and whatever ... just violence that he has. I don't want to see it happen to another family," he said. 
Chavez appeared in court for the first time Thursday. The state filed a pretrial detention motion that will be heard by a district court judge.
