A Florida man wearing a cat costume was arrested after allegedly stabbing his roommate in the neck on Tuesday, authorities say.
Omar Gutierrez, 32, stands accused of one count of attempted murder, according to the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office.
“We exchanged Gutierrez’s cat costume for a green and white striped jump suit,” the ACSO remarked in a press release posted on Facebook.
At around 5:45 p.m. on Tuesday, multiple deputies responded to a house in Gainesville where a man had just called 911 to report being stabbed in the neck by his roommate, the sheriff’s office said.
In a video of body camera-worn footage released by the ACSO, Captain Chris Sims says two deputies “forced their way inside of a home where [the] stabbing victim lay on the floor bleeding and [the] suspect was still inside that residence and potentially armed.”
The victim’s name has not been released.
