NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro Police arrested a man after he stabbed a stranger while inside a Kroger on Eastland Avenue Tues. afternoon.

Fesnando Santos, 37, allegedly stabbed a man in the hand, according to a MNPD press release.

Officers were called to the store for an initial report of a man armed and trying to stab people in the Kroger. He was reportedly sweating profusely, yelling, and acting irrationally.

Officers found him at the front door with a self-inflicted stab wound. They ordered him to drop the knife, he complied and was taken into custody.

Santos is being held in lieu of $500,000 bond. He was convicted of reckless homicide in 2019 for fatally stabbing a male acquaintance in the parking lot of the Quality Inn, 2401 Brick Church Pike. He was sentenced to two years.

Editor's Note: The report initially indicated that two people were injured in an argument. A MNPD press release later explained those injured were the victim and the suspect, who injured himself.
