On Wednesday January 25, 2012 at around 5:45 PM, Officers responded to Beallís Department Store, 4901 East Silver Springs Blvd. in reference to a report of a man that had been stabbed. Upon arrival Officers made contact with the victim James Self. Mr. Self advised he worked at Anthonyís Pool and Spa and his boss Anthony Manno had attacked him and cut him on the neck and hands with an unknown object. Mr. Self had serious injuries and had to be flown to a medical facility for emergency treatment.

A witness at the business reported there was an argument between the victim and Manno at which time Manno attacked the victim.
