Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a Big Coppitt man for allegedly stabbing and critically injuring another man.
The victim, Yunior Carrazana, 30, of Sugarloaf Key was taken to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami for life-threatening wounds to his upper torso.
Deputies arrested 27-year-old Ramon Sanchez.
According to investigators, Sanchez had a previous relationship with the mother of his child, Dayanet Portal.
Portal told investigators she was talking to Carrazana when Sanchez barged into the home where the couple was with two children.
Deputies said Sanchez tried to attack Portal and Carrazana helped to defend her, but was stabbed multiple times.
Portal told investigators Sanchez forced them to remain in the room for about 15 minutes and would not allow anyone to call for help.
Sanchez left and deputies later spotted his vehicle.
They pulled him over and found a bloody knife allegedly used in the attack.
Sanchez was charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery, false imprisonment, obstruction, domestic battery, and burglary with battery on the occupant.
