Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department deputies responded to Tuesday evening at approximately 5:47 p.m. to a reported stabbing that had occurred at the Green Acres Mobile Home Park, 1692 East County Road 200 North, Warsaw.  Emergency personal and officers arrived and met with the victim, identified as Viviana Arias, 28, who was suffering from multiple stab wounds.  Officers were advised that the suspect was allegedly her husband, Avundio Lozano, 35.  They were also told that he had fled the scene driving the couples white, Toyota 4-door, with Illinois license plates affixed to the vehicle.  The suspect was purportedly last scene northbound on County Road 175 East.  Officers from several agencies converged upon the area in an attempt to locate the suspect.  K.C.S.D. deputies located the suspect vehicle in the town of Leesburg a short time later, but it was unoccupied.
