In the early hours of Sunday outside of Mekka Nightclub in Miami's 24-hour downtown entertainment district, a confrontation involving two different groups of friends ended up with one man stabbing another.
The victim, 31 year-old Marlon Sanchez, is listed in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, and police are still trying to identify the attacker according to WSVN.
After both men involved were partying inside the club, an argument started on the sidewalk. At one point a black BMW, heading against traffic on the one-way NE Second Avenue, jumped the curb and parked on the sidewalk. The driver of the vehicle popped the car's truck, and then the aggressor grabbed a "bladed object."
The aggressor than followed the victim and his friend down the street and stabbed Sanchez multiple times.
The attacker then got into the black BMW and took off with his friends. Police describe the people who left in the car as two Hispanic men and two Hispanic women, all in their 20s.
According to Local 10, police believer that the man seen here in the black shirt is the attacker.
