A brawl outside of a laundromat in Roswell last week left one man in the hospital and another in jail.
The incident occurred on Thursday, June 22 after unkind words were exchanged between a few people and Ronnie “Buggy” Evans outside the Roswell Coin Laundry on Alpharetta Street, witnesses and police told Channel 2 Action News.
Evans ended the brawl when he took out a box cutter and stabbed a man in the neck and head, witnesses and police said.
The stabbing victim, Emmanuel Mora-Hurtado, 26, was taken to the hospital. Evans, 65, of Roswell, also broke another man’s nose before he calmly walked away from the scene, surveillance video shows and a police report confirms.
A witness told Channel 2 that Evans said he wanted to “kill” all of the “Latino people.”
Jail records show Evans was booked Friday and is still being held in a Fulton County jail without bond on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery.
Evans was arrested for DUI in 2014 and a DUI, hit and run in 2016, according to jail records.
