The determination of what and how many criminal charges to be filed is up to the District Attorney and based on the facts provided by the law enforcement officers and witnesses involved in the altercation. Based on the facts you've presented, it seems like there may be some issues regarding the alleged defendant(s) age. A person between 13 to 15 years of age is considered a juvenile in the state of New Mexico. The process for prosecuting a juvenile delinquent differs greatly from normal prosecution of an adult defendant.
