Miami-Dade Corrections Officer Stabbed in Neck for Not Sharing a Cigarette
Miami-Dade Police are on the lookout for a nicotine-addicted neck-stabber who attacked one of his own.
On January 5 around 6 a.m., a man walked up to Miami-Dade Department of Corrections officer Jorge Marbal in the area of 6215 SW 133rd Ave. He asked the officer for a cigarette and spare change. Marbal refused, and the man went wild.
Marbal turned to walk away, but the man took out a sharp object and stabbed him in the neck. The two struggled, but ultimately the man took off on foot.
Police released the above sketch of the assailant.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477) or 866-471-8477.
