RACINE — A Racine man has been charged for his alleged involvement in a stabbing that occurred on April 25 on 16th Street.
Victor A. Perez-Garcia, 21, of the 1800 block of Marquette Street, was charged with a felony count of attempted first degree intentional homicide with use of a dangerous weapon and a misdemeanor count of criminal damage to property.
According to a criminal complaint:
On April 25, officers were sent to the 1700 block of 16th Street for a person being stabbed.
Upon arrival, an officer found the victim, who had fresh blood on his face from multiple stab wounds. An officer spoke to a witness, who said he and the victim were outside when a white Volkswagen pulled up and two men got out and began arguing with the victim.
One of the men allegedly grabbed a knife and stabbed the victim. The witness said he was trying to stop the man who didn’t have the knife, later identified as Perez-Garcia, from getting to the victim.
An officer spoke to the victim who said the two men used to be acquaintances of his and pulled up to pick a fight with him. One of them allegedly went back to the car and grabbed a folding knife and then said “you know I can kill you.” He said that Perez-Garcia was a “cheerleader” during the incident.
The victim had eight cut or stab wounds: two on his head/neck, one on his upper middle chest, one on his right shoulder, one on his right palm and three on his back.
Perez-Garcia was given a $50,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Monday. A preliminary court hearing is set for May 12 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
