VINELAND — A city man was arrested Monday after allegedly stabbing another man outside a business on Elmer Road last week.

About 6 p.m. Nov. 27, police responded to a business in the 500 block of West Elmer Road for a stabbing, police said. There, they found a man who had two puncture wounds in his back.

Omar Bermudez-Perez, 41, of the 1000 block of East Oak Road, had stabbed the man during an argument with another man over a woman, police said. Bermudez-Perez was not there when police arrived.

Police did not reveal the identity of the victim, who was taken to Inspira Medical Center and treated for life-threatening injuries.

Then, on Monday, police responded to the 1000 block of East Oak Road for a call not related to the stabbing and found Bermudez-Perez, police said.

Bermudez-Perez was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon, possession of a knife for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a knife. He was taken to the Cumberland County jail.
