One man is behind bars and another man is being sought in connection with Saturday's stabbing of a Tampa man.
Youlent Fonticiella suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Omar David Diaz was arrested at his home about an hour after the 10:20 a.m. assault.
He is facing one count of accessory after the fact. Diaz, 20, was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail where he is being held on a bond of $2,000.
Detectives are still looking for the man they say wielded the knife. Ossnel Jorge Cazorla-Labaut, 27, allegedly stabbed Fonticiella in the head and the back.
According to a Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office report Diaz and Cazorla-Labaut drove to the victim's home at 3803 Kimball Ave. early Saturday.
Cazorla-Labaut knocked on the door and punched Fonticiella, 21, in the face when he answered. He then allegedly pulled out a knife and started to use it on the victim.
Investigators believe the dispute between the two men involved a woman. Cazorla-Labaut, who was already on felony probation for a battery conviction out of Hillsborugh County, was tracked by a GPS monitoring device.
At some point he removed it and was last seen driving a 2005 green Honda Accord – Florida tag 113 TNI.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Cazorla-Labaut on a variety of charges including aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, criminal mischief, violation of probation and removing a monitoring device.
The suspect is known to become violent and has an extensive arrest record in Hillsborough County. Cazorla-Labaut has been arrested nine times since 2009.
If you have anyone information on the suspect's whereabouts please contact HCSO at 247-8200.
