Man charged in Mandan Walmart stabbing
MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A man accused of using a needle nose pliers to stab a person outside a Walmart store in Mandan is facing felony charges.
Twenty-four-year-old Hilario Flores is charged with aggravated assault with a weapon and terrorizing. Flores is accused of stabbing a vendor inside the store last Friday causing a puncture wound in the back of his head and a cut behind his left ear that required eight stitches. About 100 people were evacuated from the store after the stabbing.
Police say Flores told them he thought the vendor was a store employee who may have seen him attempting to steal and he was trying to scare him.
The Bismarck Tribune says a judge set Flores’ bail at $100,000 cash Wednesday afternoon. Court documents do not list an attorney for him.
