A 22-year-old man with two warrants for child sex crimes is the suspect in a bar fight earlier this month that left a man in serious condition.

Alejandro Ruiz, 22, has been identified as the suspect in the stabbing of a 31-year-old man during a bar fight Oct. 14, according to the Odessa Police Department.

Investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Ruiz for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony. Two other active warrants are already pinned to Ruiz right now, who remains elusive, to police: one for aggravated sexual assault of a child and a second for indecency with a child.

On Oct. 14, according to police, Raymundo Nunez, 31, was stabbed with a knife during a bar fight around 1:57 a.m. at Brewskies, 2802 North County Road West. The injuries were potentially life-threatening but then upgraded to serious. Nunez's assailant fled before officers arrived, police said at the time. As of Friday, Nunez was listed in fair condition at Medical Center Hospital.

Later in the evening of Oct. 14, police reported Yolanda Borrego, 24, who was previously listed as a person of interest, voluntarily met with detectives and was cooperative, Cpl. Steve LeSueur said. She is  no longer a person of interest, according to police.

The Odessa Police Department needs the public’s assistance in locating Ruiz. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to call Odessa Crime Stoppers at 432-333-TIPS or the Odessa Police Department at 432-333-3641.
