Man wanted in Pennsylvania stabbing caught in Texas

PHOENIXVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Customs and Border Protection officers in Texas captured a man wanted on attempted murder charges in Pennsylvania who was trying to cross into Mexico.

Authorities say Mexican immigration officials at Gateway International Bridge on Monday notified them that 32-year-old Leovigildo Castanon lacked documents to enter into Mexico. A fingerprint check verified the Guatemala citizen was wanted.

Castanon is accused of stabbing a female in Phoenixville on Nov. 8.

He's being held pending an extradition hearing.
