Authorities have arrested a Waco man, who has been on the run for months, after police say he stabbed a man at a traffic light.

Amado De La Paz, 35, of Waco, is charged with aggravated assault for the incident. According to police, on August 12, 2012, De La Paz and a 47-year-old man were arguing with one another at a red light at the intersection of North 26th street and Bosque Boulevard in Waco. During the altercation, De La Paz reportedly got out of his car and stabbed the victim in the head, neck, and chest area.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for his injuries. Back in February 2013, police announced they were looking for De La Paz and considered him dangerous.

De Le Paz was arrested Monday, near North 11th Street and Brook Avenue by U.S. Marshal’s Task Force deputies. Along with the assault charge, De La Paz is also being held on two counts of non-payment of child support and driving with a suspended license.
