According to the complaint, Willmar police were called around 5 p.m. Friday to Little Dukes, where a citizen reported two men were fighting. When the first officer arrived, they were informed that the participants were at a nearby store and that the silver Isuzu Rodeo was involved.
A man at that location reported that Sanchez had seen him at Little Dukes and that Sanchez had accused the man of following him. The man had turned away from Sanchez and said that he was crazy, which caused Sanchez to hit the man in the head and pull a knife. Sanchez then ran away.
Police located Sanchez in a nearby restroom and arrested him. He refused to speak with police.
