Three Americans stabbed in Puerto Rico earlier this week while visiting a popular tourist area have been identified as tourists from South Carolina and Georgia.
Authorities in San Juan, Puerto Rico, say 37-year-old Wallace Alonso Florence and 39-year-old Carlos Sanchez Brown from South Carolina and 38-year-old Jackson Bradom Tremayne from Georgia were stabbed around 4 a.m. Monday, the New York Post reported.
The incident began when Brown started filming a hamburger cart in the La Perla neighborhood of San Juan made famous by the music video for Luis Fonsi’s hit song “Despacito.”
Some locals reportedly told the group to stop filming and one suspect, described as having fair skin and long white hair, allegedly assaulted Florence after the group continued filming.
