What happened

The victim was later identified as Emmanuel Diaz, who was hospitalized and in stable condition.

On his bed in a hospital in San Jose, California, Diaz revealed his version of the story.

“He pulled out a knife, and I wanted to take it away from him, but we fell, and that’s when he stabbed me; at the time, I didn’t realize how serious it was because I didn’t feel anything, but when I saw that there was blood on my shirt I stood up and went to the benches, grabbed a bottle of water and poured it on myself,” he continued.

“We started walking to get to the stairs and go up when a lot of people started throwing beer, they turned around and insulted us; I was in front,” said Maximino Enriquez, Emmanuel’s friend, in an interview with TUDN.

Another of his companions also shared his version of events.

“I don’t remember what they were saying, I just shouted ‘calm down, calm down’, and when the guy pulled out the knife, I told them, ‘he has a knife, you have to take it away’, because now you can’t compete with a fist versus a knife,” said Christian Perez.

Misidentified the suspect

After calling security at Levi’s Stadium, they pointed out the alleged culprit; however, the police failed to act and misidentify one of Emmanuel’s friends, Maximino, as the attacker.

“The security personnel grabbed me by the shoulder and handed me over to the police, who immediately handcuffed me, took me upstairs, and said on the radio that they already had the man with the knife because I look a bit like him.”

“If it wasn’t for an American who was passing by, she told me that if I needed anything because the officers didn’t speak Spanish and I didn’t speak much English,

“I couldn’t communicate with them. The girl said she had recorded it, showed it to the police, and they realized it wasn’t me.”
