GIPD Reveals Names Involved At St. Mary's Stabbing

5-17-13 - stabbing scene


A house of worship was the site of violence Friday as Grand Island Police have released the names and more details about a series of stabbings involving two people at St. Mary's Cathedral.


Captain Kerrey Mehlin said in press release that 41-year-old Aslin Nabarro was taken into custody after stabbing 33-year-old Mirna Medina-Colocho up to twenty times in the Cathedral's parking lot after an argument. Nabarro is the victim's estranged boyfriend.


Mehlin says Medina-Colocho suffered injuries to her head and torso. Nabarro then inflicted injury on himself...cutting himself across the throat and fled the scene. He collapsed in a nearby alley.


Both were rushed to St. Francis Medical Center and underwent surgery. As of Friday, both were listed in fair condition.


Father Jonathon Sorenson addressed the situation through his Twitter account and said, "We are all okay. Thanks for the concern. Pray for the victim and the suspect."


Father Sorenson also says the daycare located by the church was not involved in the incident and no children were in danger.


Captain Mehlin says police are continuing their investigation.
