The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 29-year-old man who deputies say stabbed a man at a hotel in Bradenton late Monday and fled on foot.
Hugor Orona was staying with a 25-year-old man at a hotel in the 600 block of 67th Street Circle East while they worked in Bradenton, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office press release. Orona was drinking heavily and was told by hotel staff to quiet down around 11 p.m.
When the 25-year-old man asked Orona to be quiet for fear of getting kicked out of the hotel, Orona took out a knife and started swinging it at the man, who was cut on the arm and stomach, according to the release.
The man ran to the office for help, but Orona fled. He was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated battery.
