CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Woman chased and stabbed at apartment complex

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A man is in custody after an attack against a woman was caught on camera in northwest Fresno Sunday morning.

Fresno police were called to the Bridgewood Crossing apartment complex at around 3:30 a.m.

They arrived to find a woman stabbed in her thigh.

A neighbor's surveillance cameras captured the moments the woman ran from her assailant screaming for help.

The desperation in that woman's voice is why a neighbor came to her aid.

Javier Guevara woke up to screams and described what happened next.

"I saw someone running toward the fence, and I knew there was somebody else involved, so I looked for them I found this woman in the corner, and she was bleeding," he said.

Guevera called 9-1-1 and brought the woman to a neighbor's front steps to evaluate her and see if there were any other stab wounds.

He says nothing like this has happened in this area.

Police later arrested 41-year-old Mark Florez in connection with the incident. He is in the Fresno County jail on the felony charges including assault with a deadly weapon.

The neighbor we spoke with went on to say that one of his neighbors tried convincing the victim to contact the Marjaree Mason Center for help.
