An illegal immigrant stabbed a Maryland man multiple times with a box cutter after the citizen informed him that he shouldn’t urinate at a bus stop.

When Montgomery County Police were dispatched to a metro bus station in Wheaton in late November, they found a man seriously wounded in the face, neck and stomach, having been slashed and stabbed several times.

The victim and several witnesses identified the attacker as 46-year-old Salvador Gomez-Lopez, who at the time was reported to be drunk and belligerent.

Gomez-Lopez had been urinating in plain view of other bus passengers when the victim approached him and questioned his behavior. Insulted, Gomez-Lopez reportedly drew a box cutter from his backpack and began attacking the victim, who eventually took the blade away from the assaulting alien.

Police claim the non-citizen was “uncooperative,” lying about his identity and with very few ties to the community.

According to WJLA, Gomez-Lopez is from El Salvador and has since had an immigration detainer lodged against him by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He remains in the custody of Montgomery County.
