The unidentified victim went to a neighbor’s home at approximately 12:40 a.m., knocked on the window and called for help. The neighbor found the man bleeding heavily from a stab wound to his neck. Blanco came outside from the other residence, briefly approached the neighbor and the victim, then went back inside.

Blanco was detained by officers. He had what appeared to be blood on his face, hands and clothes. He declined to be interviewed, but said, “If something happened tonight, I have my reasons.”

Blanco is being held without bond pending a hearing. A motive for the crime remains under investigation. Police did not say what the relationship was between the victim and suspect.
