Incident at 4000 Hollister

April 22, 2006 -- Houston police are investigating the stabbing of two men, one fatal, at 4000 Hollister about 11:45 p.m. on Friday (Apr. 21).

The deceased victim has been identified as Jonas Urgiles, 27, of 4000 Hollister #212. He suffered multiple lacerations to his body and was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he later died. A second unidentified victim, who was also transported to Ben Taub, received only minor injuries.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant M. McStravick and Officer T. Andrade reported:

The victims were driving through the parking lot of an apartment complex when an unknown suspect stepped in front of their vehicle forcing it to stop. Their vehicle was then surrounded by up to 12 Hispanic males who attacked the victims as they exited the vehicle. Urgiles was stabbed multiple times and the second victim, whose wallet was taken by one of the suspects, received minor stab wounds. Robbery is believed to be a possible motive.
