Arguing about woman led to stabbing of farm worker

Posted:
LOYAL (WAOW) – The argument that led to the stabbing of a rural Loyal farm worker involved his relationship with the sister of the man accused of stabbing him, an investigator said Thursday.

Victor Ytehua-Tzompaxtle, 34, remained at large after being charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide in the Monday night stabbing at a rural home, said Jim Hirsch, chief deputy of the Clark County Sheriff's Department.

At this point, we have no idea where he is located,” Hirsch said. “He is from Mexico.”

The two men had been drinking before an argument erupted and the victim was stabbed in his upper stomach. The man was in stable condition on Thursday, Hirsch said.

Ytehua-Tzompaxtle, whose sister is the girlfriend of the man stabbed, left the scene on foot and investigators do not think he had a vehicle registered to him, said Jason Bourget, a sheriff's department detective.

The sister has cooperated in the search for her brother, he said.

Ytehua-Tzompaxtle, a farm worker who moved to Clark County from Rusk County about a month ago, may be trying to return to Mexico, Bourget said.

It is logical. We don't have anything concrete on that. We are still following up on it," he said.

Immigration and border patrol authorities have been contacted, the detective said.

Ytehua-Tzompaxtle is described as being 5-foot, 10 inches tall, weighing about 185 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about Ytehua-Tzompaxtle's whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff's department at 715-743-3157 or 1-800-743-2420.
