Guillermo was taken into custody without incident. While detaining Guillermo, he
spontaneously uttered several times, “It was self-defense!” Miguel was treated by PBCFR and transported to Delay Medical Center for further medical treatment. A knife with blood was located on the sidewalk near the mailbox of the residence with address “7722” labeled above.

On the morning of 01/12/22, just prior to PBSO Dispatch receiving the 911 call, Miguel was in the kitchen preparing coffee, when Guillermo attacked him from behind without warning. Guillermo stabbed Miguel 13 times with a kitchen knife.
