Danbury man arrested for attempted murder in Southeast

A Danbury man has been arrested for attempted murder.  Putnam County Sheriff Deputies responded to La Patrona Mexican Restaurant on Route 22 in Southeast on Sunday for a dispute in progress with a knife involved.  A large crowd was outside the restaurant and Deputies found a 27-year-old male had been stabbed in the neck and stomach.  They performed first aid until an ambulance arrived to transport the man to Danbury Hospital. Deputies determined, through interviews and video surveillance, that the victim and suspect were in a verbal dispute which quickly escalated.  The suspect was identified as 27-year old Nestor Rodriguez. He was located later that day and taken into custody without incident.  He was charged with Attempted Murder, Attempted Assault, and Assault.  Rodriguez was arraigned and remanded to Putnam County Jail on bail. Deputies were assisted at the scene by members of the New York State Police, Carmel, and MTA Police Departments.
