Local man accused of attacking victim with box cutter


A Waco man has been arrested after he is accused of slashing another man with a box cutter in a late February incident. 21-year-old Juan Carlos Villa was booked into McLennan County Jail early Tuesday morning for the incident.

An arrest affidavit states that Waco police sent officers to Kendrick Park in the 4000 block of Bagby on February 27 in reference to a fight. When police arrived, they didn't see anyone fighting.

Later that evening, police were sent to Providence Hospital to visit with an assault victim. Police learned the victim was involved at the incident at Kendrick Park.

The victim told police that he had gone to the park with his nephew, and had been attacked by a man named "Carlos." The victim said the suspect had a box cutter and had stabbed him. The victim's nephew was able to chase the suspect away with a broken bottle, and then took the victim to the hospital.

The victim had a laceration to his right wrist, puncture wounds on his right hand, left armpit and back, bruising, redness and scratches to both arms and upper body. He later received numerous stitches to close the numerous cuts and stab wounds.

Police were able to see a video recording of the assault, and concluded that the victim was backing away from the suspect before he was assaulted.

Police later learned that "Carlos" was actually Juan Carlos Villa, and he is the boyfriend of the victim's ex-girlfriend.

The victim was shown, at a later date, a lineup of suspects, and was able to identify Villa as the assailant. Villa has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
