Milwaukee - Last Tuesday, Jose Luis Leon-Velazquez, 42, waived his preliminary hearing after being charged with one felony count of first degree reckless injury in connection with the stabbing of a 28-year-old woman. Leon Velazques is accused of stabbing the victim once during a domestic incident on September 5, in Milwaukee's South side.
The criminal complaint states, after stabbing the victim, Leon-Velazquez drove her to the hospital and dropped her off without going into the hospital. He then went home to pack his clothes on bags and was intending to flee the city.
Police arrested Leon-Velazquez at the 1400 block of W. Washington St. He was found hidden in an upper apartment building closet and several bags were packed containing Leon-Velazquez clothes. 
The 28-year-old victim survived the stabbing, but needed surgery.
Leon-Velazquez was released on parole on July 5. He was convicted on drug charges and was sentenced to five years in prison, but actually only did one year on the drug charge, according to court records.
Cash bail of $60,000 was set for Leon-Velazquez, and a parole hold was also issued by a state parole officer in Wisconsin.
