Deputies: New Port Richey man stabbed another with kitchen knife

NEW PORT RICHEY — A man was arrested Monday after, deputies say, he tried to murder another man.

Antwan Abdul Wallace, 20, was arguing with the man at 7440 Cedar Point Drive on Sunday night, a Pasco sheriff's report states. The other man went into a bedroom and closed the door to get away from Wallace. Wallace told him, "I will take you out of this world," according to the report.

He went to the kitchen and grabbed a large knife, the report states, then opened the bedroom door.

The other man tried to push the door shut, but Wallace stabbed him in the lower abdomen. Wallace fled. Someone called 911 and paramedics took the man to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point with a cut artery.

Wallace, of 4711 Rowan Road, was arrested on a charge of attempted murder. He remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Tuesday on no bail. He was charged last year with burglary with assault.
