North Phoenix bar customers jumped into action protecting a victim and capturing the suspect after a machete attack.
Phoenix police report that on June 29 they responded to a bar near 28th Street and Bell Road where citizens were waving them down saying the man lying on the ground attacked another man with a machete.
Police found 46-year-old Jesus Manuel Quinonez lying on the ground with blood on his clothes. Customers reported that they locked the victim in the bar after he was stabbed, and they then subdued Quinonez.
Police say Quinonez was in the bar talking with someone, and they realized they worked at the same place. An argument ensued, and Quinonez allegedly pulled out a knife. A patron disarmed Quinonez and others pushed him outside the bar.
Quinonez later returned with a machete and attacked the first victim's brother cutting him in the arm and chest.
Quinonez reportedly threw the machete into some bushes before being captured by other customers.
The victim needed multiple staples to close his wounds.
Quinonez is being held on a $50,000 bond on aggravated assault charges.
