Police: Stabbing in Sandwich started with dirty look

SANDWICH — A 26-year-old Sandwich man accused of stabbing a man on Independence Day remained in jail Monday unable to post 10 percent of his $100,000 bond.

Manuel Guzman, of the 300 block of Wilshire Drive, was driving about 7 p.m. Friday on the 600 block of East Center Street in Sandwich and gave a man a dirty look, court records show. The man put his arms up looking at Guzman, so Guzman put his car in reverse and began fighting with the victim, court records show.

During the fight, Guzman was heading towards his car when the victim followed him. Guzman then pulled a knife on the victim and stabbed him in the chest, court records show.

The victim was treated Friday at Valley West Hospital in Sandwich, where he gave officers a description of Guzman and stated he punched Guzman in the eye during the fight, causing it to swell and bruise, court records show.

Guzman was charged with three counts of aggravated battery, which typically is punishable with probation or between two and five years in prison. He is next due in court July 22.
