Live Oak Police identified a man they allege stabbed another man at a New Year's celebration.


Juan Pablo Viascan-Sanchez, 28.

Officers are trying to obtain an arrest warrant for Juan Pablo Viascan-Sanchez, 28, for attempted second-degree murder, the Police Department reported.

Viascan-Sanchez, who is from Bulloch County, Ga., is accused of wounding Juan Vazquez Hernandez, 28, last week. Police reported Hernandez and Viascan-Sanchez had argued, and Hernandez was stabbed with a knife at his home at 606 Scriven Ave.

Viascan-Sanchez also is wanted in Georgia for burglary, according to police.

Police believe the earlier case may be linked to another attack reported Sunday. Two men told officers they were walking in the Live Oak Pines Mobile Home Park when another man confronted them and demanded their wallets. One victim refused and was slashed across the abdomen with a knife. He was treated at Shands Live Oak and later released. The incident was reported at about 2:30 a.m.

Anyone with information about the recent attack is asked to call Detective Justin Bates at 386-362-7463 or 386-208-8477.
