NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans police have issued an arrest warrant in a Mid City stabbing incident. The incident occurred Friday around 11:15 p.m. near the intersection of Tulane Avenue and South Dupree Street. 

According to police, the suspect, identified as 41-year-old Sacienda Carlos, stabbed the victim in the stomach. Following the stabbing, the victim and others in the area, tried to stop Carlos from getting away. Carlos was able to run from the scene towards Baudin Street. During the chase, the victim flagged down a police officer in the 2700 block of Baudin. Carlos also noticed the police officer and continued to run, but was eventually caught by the witnesses. Carlos then began to fight the witnesses, trying to get way but was eventually taken into custody by police. 

Both the victim and the witnesses identified Carlos and the man responsible for the incident. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he is recovering from his wound. Carlos was also brought to the hospital to receive treatment for a head injury that he suffered during the fight with the witnesses. Police say that when Carlos is released from the hospital, he will be booked with aggravated battery by cutting.
