Tampa Man Suspected Of Knife Attack Captured In Pasco County

knife-316655_640.jpgA Tampa man suspected in a Hillsborough County knife attack was arrested in Zephyrhills last week.

The situation began last weekend when a 34-year-old man became involved in an argument with two other individuals. The dispute became heated, and investigators say the man produced a bladed weapon and stabbed one of the individuals. He allegedly cut the other individual before climbing into the 2000 Toyota Camry owned by one of the victims and sped away from the scene.

With a description of the dented and slightly damaged vehicle gleaned from surveillance footage in hand, Hillsborough County authorities prompted law enforcement to be on the lookout for the defendant and the car in which he fled. The sheriff's office also warned the public of his escape, saying that they considered him to be armed and dangerous.

The defendant was ultimately taken into custody in Pasco County, but authorities did not release details of the capture aside from noting that he was located on the Pasco side of the border with Hillsborough. Authorities released few other details about the defendant's capture.

The Florida native was booked into the Pasco County Jail where he will be held until he's transported to Hillsborough County to face charges of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, grand theft motor vehicle, and petty theft.
