SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - A Shreveport man was convicted today for knifing his brother several times last year.

Cartez Sanjuan Collins, 24, was found guilty of aggravated battery, a lesser included charge, in the attack that occurred on Sept. 16, 2019. He had been charged with attempted second-degree murder.

Evidence shows that Collins started a fist-fight with his then 17 year-old brother and another 18 year-old sibling. When the two siblings got in a car and tried to leave, Collins produced a saw-backed knife with brass knuckles and stabbed the victim through an open window of the car.

The victim received two stab wounds to the abdomen, causing injuries to his lung, liver and diaphragm.

SPD located Collins two days after the incident and arrested him.

On Dec. 7, Collins will face a sentence of up to 10 years in prison at hard labor and a fine of up to $5,000.
