Surveillance video reveals persons of interest in Coeur d'Alene stabbing

Posted: Updated:

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - Coeur d'Alene Police on Friday obtained surveillance video that shows persons of interest in the stabbing that happened there early Thursday morning. Detectives released the video images to the media, hoping viewers would recognize the men shown on recording.

The victim, Nestor Cubillas-Ronquillo was still being treated on Friday at Kootenai Medical Center. 

The stabbing happened around 1 a.m. Thursday on the 200 block of the alleyway between Lakeside and Coeur d'Alene Avenues.  According to witnesses at the Torch Lounge on Coeur d'Alene Avenue, Cubillas-Ronquillo got into a verbal fight with someone around 12:30 a.m because he thought someone stole his wallet.  Employees found the wallet and all of his cash in it.  That ended the confrontation.

As Cubillas-Ronquillo walked out of the Torch Lounge a short time later, he was reportedly met by at least two men - possibly more.  He was apparently stabbed south west of that location, down the alleyway on the south side of the alley.  He was pierced and cut several times with a knife. His wounds do not appear to be life threatening.

In following the trail of blood, investigators determined Cubillas-Ronquillo walked west down the alley, then continued on and crossed 2nd  Street into the parking lot of the Coeur d'Alene Press.  Following the trail, he apparently crossed the street to the Coeur d'Alene Brewing Company where he was found and helped by bystanders.  The victim did not have his wallet on him when he was found.

Detectives are asking the public to view the videos and call with information on the identification of the men Anyone with information is asked to call the Police Department at 208-769-2320 or the Tip Line at 208-769-2296.
