Thirty-one-year-old Raul Casanova was arrested by Alice police Tuesday in connection with a stabbing that occurred at the beginning of August.
Alice police were notified that Casanova was at a residence on County Road 122. With the assistance of Jim Wells County deputies, Casanova was detained, but not before he could assault a deputy and threaten another officer, according to police officials.
According to police reports, Casanova went to his bosses home, earlier in the month, on the 700 block of Kennedy with two other men. Casanova was upset because the victim was unable to pay him. A fight ensued between the victim and his employee until a second man and the victim's wife intervened.
The victim went inside his home when he noticed he had been stabbed and was taken to the hospital. The victim had stab wounds to his left side of his stomach. The victim was later flown via Halo Flight to a Corpus Christi hospital.
Casanova was taken to the JWC jail. He was charged with resisting arrest, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, assault on public servant and obstruction. As of Thursday, he remained in custody with a total bond of $17,500.
