Hillsborough deputies need help finding a man they say stabbed another in the head

TAMPA — Deputies need help tracking down a man they say stabbed another in the head.

At about 10:20 a.m. Saturday, deputies say Ossnel Jorge Cazorla-Labaut, 27, and Omar David Diaz, 20, drove to the home at 3803 Kimball Ave. and knocked on the door.

As soon as the door opened, deputies say Cazorla-Labaut punched 21-year-old resident Youlent Fonticiella in the face, and as he was hunched over from the punch, Cazorla-Labaut pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the head.

Fonticiella ran to the front yard, deputies say, but his attacker followed, striking twice more with his knife to the victim's back.

Fonticiella survived with non-life threatening injuries and is hospitalized with a punctured lung.

Cazorla-Labaut and Diaz took off in a 2005 green Honda Accord. Deputies arrested Diaz at his home on a charge of accessory after the fact.

It would have been much easier to find the alleged stabber, but Cazorla-Labaut removed a GPS monitor that had been tracking him as he serves felony probation for battery and battery on a law enforcement officer.

Deputies have issued an arrest warrant for Ossnel Jorge Cazorla-Labaut for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon with great bodily harm, removing a monitoring device and criminal mischief.

Authorities believe he is still driving his car and ask that anyone with information call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477). Those with information can also report anonymously online at www.crimestopperstb.com or text CSTB plus the tip to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).

Detectives think they have a motive in this attack:

A woman the men shared in common.
