The woman told authorities the victim, who is her father, and Alvarado got into an altercation outside her house early Wednesday morning, court papers show.

She said she was calling the police when she heard the victim yell and claim that Alvarado had stabbed him, court papers show.

Another man, 29-year-old John David Balboa, of Glyndon, is charged with third-degree assault for allegedly kicking a man, identified only as R.R.A. in court papers, in the head and face, court papers show.

Balboa was arrested at Prairie View Estates and charging documents for Alvarado indicate a man identified only as J.B. who tried to break up the fight between the victim and Alvarado.

Court papers also show J.B. later “ran up and pushed” Alvarado to the ground when authorities first responded to the incident.

Court records did not state if Balboa was connected with Alvarado, the woman or the victim.
