Ferdinand Velez Latorre, 37, was arrested March 20 after an investigation by Port St. Lucie police.
One man identified as a victim on March 11 told police that Latorre was drunk and began arguing with a second male victim about a squeegee. He said Latorre cut the second victim’s arm with a razor blade.
Next, he said, Latorre got a machete and chased the second victim. He said the second victim jumped on a pickup truck, and Latorre followed.
“I’ll kill you, I’ll kill everybody!” Latorre is quoted as saying.
A squeegee is a T-shaped tool with a cross piece edged with leather or rubber. Squeegees are designed to facilitate the removal of water from a surface, such as a window, by dragging it across the surface.
Meanwhile, the second victim said Latorre “was upset with him over a squeegee,” records show.
The second victim said Latorre cut his arm with a razor blade after the second victim declined to give Latorre the squeegee. The second victim also said Latorre chased him with a machete.
A flap over a squeegee turned into a machete and razor blade attack that landed one man behind bars, records show.
