EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso police on Friday announced an arrest in last month's stabbing attack that they said took place outside the Rockin’ Cigar Bar & Grill in the city's Cincinnati Entertainment District on the west side.

21–year-old Yaanan Uriel Evans of El Paso was being held in the downtown jail on $500,000 bond after being taken into custody by police gang unit investigators early Friday morning.

Authorities filed a charge of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon against Evans in an attack on 24–year-old Devin Vaughn Graham that left the victim critically injured with multiple stab wounds.

Investigators said Graham was stabbed Jan. 24 by Evans during what they described as an altercation in front of the bar shortly after closing time.

    1. The fight did not happen in or near that bar. The victim was on the sidewalk when he was stabbed. A patron of the bar was the one who found the victim while leaving. Kvia needs to report properly on this. Unfortunately that makes it less sensational, but at least its the truth

        1. STFU mt61. Why are you commenting on this news site? You swore you’d never post again once Senile Joe was sworn in. I guess you’re like all the rest of the lying Hollywood elitists who said they’d move to Canada if Trump got elected, then never did. Typical liberal mentality.

        1. Wrong, its rich spoiled overgrown immature idiots that disgrace our flag and anthem to protest. Most of them complain about a handful of blacks being shot by cops while they resist. Yet they say nothing about the thousands of blacks that are killed at the hands of blacks. They cry the inner cities need helping hands to lift them out while they sit on vast fortunes and offer nothing

          1. It is curious how BLM and antifa will burn down a city when a criminal is killed by a cop but they say nothing when when a black man is killed for a dime bag of weed by another black man. These “activists” like the famous POS Kaepernick comes from a middle class family that gave him everything he needed in life. That same POS poses for an advertisement about giving up everything for a “cause”, he was paid 11 million dollars for the ad but like he said he gave up everything. Liberal hypocrite!
