A Cherokee County grand jury has indicted a man on felony charges, after authorities say he stabbed a taxi driver after they got lost.
Antonio Carmona, 37, of Canton, has been charged with aggravated assault and theft of services, according to an indictment filed June 13.
According to an arrest warrant filed by Holly Springs Police Department in February, Carmona hired a taxi driver the night of Jan. 25 to take him from Chamblee to the “hibachi place” in Holly Springs. A “language barrier” delayed the trip and they got lost — and about two hours and 20 minutes after they left, Carmona arrived in Holly Springs, where police said he refused to pay and stabbed the driver “multiple times” in the chest with a dagger, per the warrant.
A booking report showed Carmona was taken into custody at the Cherokee County jail Feb.4. As of Wednesday afternoon, he has remained in the jail without bond, Cherokee Sheriff’s Office Capt. Jay Baker said.
An indictment is a formal charge of felony offenses, and defendants are assumed innocent until proven guilty.
