According to Rockland Police Lieutenant Nick Zeoli, there was an argument Saturday night between two individuals in the back parking lot of an apartment complex on School Street.
One man was in his car when another man came over and kicked the vehicle. The man then stepped out of his vehicle and was stabbed in the shoulder with a letter opener.
The suspect fled the area and is now wanted by Rockland Police. The suspect’s name is Filho Elvecio, he’s described as a hispanic male.
Elvecio is facing one count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and one count of attempted murder.
Lieutenant Zeoli says that based on their investigation, it seems as though the victim and Elvecio knew each other prior to the stabbing.
The victim suffered minor injuries. He was treated at the scene but refused transportation to the hospital.
Rockland police are asking anyone with information about the incident or Elvecio to call them immediately.
