Mon, 16 Aug 2010 23:00:47 GMT —
A Cameron County fugitive was caught by police during a traffic stop in Indiana.
Action 4 News featured Romeo Abrego on our series "Fugitive Finder" back in December.
Abrego was wanted for a stabbing that happened in the Los Laureles neighborhood of San Benito on Calle Alegre.
Cameron County Sheriff investigators say Abrego allegedly ran up and stabbed a 26-year-old male victim with a pocket knife several times in the chest, stomach, arms and hands back on July 1st, 2009.
One day before the stabbing, investigators said Abrego has assaulted the stabbing victim TMs younger brother by punching him in the face with brass knuckles.
Investigators believe both attacks were due to jealousy over an ex-girlfriend of Abrego.
