Man stabbed, forced to strip and get in tub

A Fort Lauderdale man stabbed an apartment visitor in the back and forced the bleeding victim to strip and get into a bathtub, police said.

Lorenzo Jones, 26, is charged with attempted felony murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony.

He was ordered held without bond in Broward County's Main Jail on Wednesday during his first appearance court hearing.

On Saturday, Jones answered the door when the victim, Nathan Benton, stopped by a Fort Lauderdale apartment along the 800 block of Northwest Third Street to visit a friend, according to a police report.

It's unclear why Jones wanted to keep Benton in the apartment, but police say Jones grew "paranoid."  Full Article
