The Postville Police Department has made an arrest in a stabbing that happened earlier this month.

Police say that Geovanny Hernandez Garcia, 27, was arrested in connection with the October 14 stabbing of Albert Gonzalez.

Police say Garcia and Gonzalez, who lived together, got into a fight at around 4:30 a.m. and Gonzalez was stabbed in the chest.  Gonzalez was taken to the hospital and released later in the day.

Garcia was charged with willful injury. 

Police say that on Thursday, Garcia was charged with forgery for giving them documents that identified him as Rojelio De La Rosa, Jr.  After a search of his home, police determined that he was working under that name.  They say his finger prints identify him as Geovanny Hernandez Garcia.

The investigation continues.
