A recent stabbing victim said this week that he did nothing to provoke the attack, despite what the suspect is telling the police.
Apolinario Gonzales, 26, got out of the hospital on Friday after more than a week there. He said the suspect, Louis G. Paredes, 23, stabbed him twice, in the upper and lower torso.
“I’m in severe pain. I won’t be able to work for a long time,” said Gonzales, whose business is Gonzales Handyman Services.
Paredes faces a charge of aggravated battery.
