2 due in court in Vegas Strip hotel stabbing case
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Two men are due to face a judge following their weekend arrests in a stabbing attack on a hotel guest in a Las Vegas Strip resort elevator.
Trent Wilcox and Carlos Heredia are due Wednesday in Las Vegas Justice Court on attempted murder charges after a man was hospitalized with more than 10 stab wounds in the 2 a.m. Saturday attack at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay.
The wounded man's injuries were not described as life-threatening.
Police say the 23-year-old Heredia received a cut hand during the melee, and the 25-year-old Wilcox was stabbed several times.
The man's wife told police that Wilcox and Heredia appeared drunk and provoked the attack.
An MGM Resorts International spokesman says hotel security responded quickly and held the alleged assailants until police arrived.
