18-Year-Old Facing Charges for Allegedly Stabbing Taxi Driver
PROGRESO – A teenager is now facing charges for allegedly stabbing a female taxi driver in Progreso.
Authorities say the assault was reported last month after the 56-year-old victim managed to drive herself to a hospital after the attack.
Alfredo Villanueva Jr. is accused of fleeing to Mexico following the robbery attempt.
Investigators say a bloody knife and a cellphone left behind helped identify the 18-year-old as the suspect.
