A 21-year-old man was taken into custody on Tuesday for allegedly stabbing an individual who had gone behind a building in Miami to urinate.
The incident, as per Miami police, occurred just before 1 a.m. on Nov. 3 in the 1500 block of Northwest First Street.
According to the authorities, the victim, part of a group of friends sitting outside a building, walked to the rear of the building to urinate.
An arrest report stated that while the victim was urinating, he noticed the suspect, Jordy Orozco, hiding in the alley, dressed in all black with a hooded jacket over his head.
The victim approached Orozco and questioned him in Spanish, asking, “what’s going on?” At this point, Orozco allegedly pulled out a sharp object and stabbed the victim multiple times before fleeing the scene.
