Man Arrested For Dolphin Mall Movie Theater Stabbing

A man accused of stabbing a movie theater patron Saturday night is facing multiple charges.

Luis Reynaldo Chavez was arrested after the incident reported at the Dolphin Mall. The 56-year-old now faces a slew of charges including aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, attempted tampering with physical evidence, disorderly conduct, and resisting an officer without violence.

According to the arrest report, Chavez was in the mall's Cobb Theaters watching "No Manches Frida 2" when he accused the person sitting behind him of bumping his seat. The victim told Chavez he didn't and they both continued to argue.

The verbal altercation turned violent when the victim stood up and said, "stop disrespecting me in front of my kids."

Police say Chavez ended up stabbing him in the abdomen and right arm with a pocket knife.

An off-duty officer heard the commotion and took Chavez into custody until back-up arrived. He is currently held at a Miami-Dade jail on a $16,500 bond.
