      A stabbing suspect is behind bars weeks after an argument over money that allegedly ended with violence.

      Brownsville police charged 32-year-old Jorge Plata on an aggravated assault charge late Tuesday morning.

      Investigators told Action 4 News that Plata is the suspect in an April 20th stabbing off Calle Reyna.

      Both Plata and the victim were arguing about money that Plata allegedly owed the victim.

      Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Plata at a home at 45 West St Charles Street Tuesday morning.
