EL RENO, Okla. - Two men are recovering after being stabbed late Wednesday night in El Reno.

Around 11 p.m. on Wednesday, a man called 911 after finding a victim in the middle of the parking lot for Beachler's Grocery store.

"This guy is, like, cut up. His face is, like, open, and he's all bloody and everything, like dripping," the 911 caller said.

The dispatcher asked the caller if the victim looked like he was injured from a fall.

"No, he didn't fall. Like, somebody cut him open," the caller said.

The caller can be heard asking the man what his name is and telling dispatchers it is "Salazar."

On Thursday morning, officials with the El Reno Police Department identified the victim as  44-year-old Luciano Salazar.

"They tried to get some information from him. Pretty much all he was able to tell them was to just point across the street and say something about a man," said Lt. Van Gilloc, with the El Reno Police Department. "Came over to where he pointed, started checking around, went into the back yard of the house here behind me where they found a man on the ground."

After emergency crews arrived at the scene, Salazar was rushed to a nearby hospital and underwent surgery.

At last check, he was listed in critical condition.

Investigators also found 32-year-old Juan Carlos Rangel-Fiscal across the street with cuts to the face.

Authorities also said both his hands were nearly severed.

Police found a machete next to him.

"Not too far from him was a large bladed machete type knife, and the wounds were consistent with that knife being used," Gilloch said.

Police said they have issued an arrest warrant for 39-year-old Arcenio De Jesus on two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Authorities believe 33-year-old Miria Lopez-Rodriguez and 8-year-old Mabel Juaraz-Lopez are with De Jesus and may be heading to Texas or Mexico.
