The case of a 29-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the stabbing of 24-year-old housemate was continued due to delayed medical records.

Eluid Aguilar Hidalgo was arrested on Feb. 2 after trying to kill his housemate at 791 Maria Way, police said. He is charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated mayhem and being under the influence of a controlled substance, police said.

At Hidalgo’s court appearance Thursday, Supervising Deputy District Attorney Frank Carrubba and Deputy Public Defender Louella Tsai agreed to continue the case to review the victim’s medical records. He lost the tip of his finger and sustained a large cut to his face, Carrubba said.

The two plan to reconvene May 22 after they have reviewed the envelope’s contents.

Both Hidalgo and the victim lived in a north Gilroy home that, at times, housed at least a dozen people, police and neighbors said. Police responded to a 911 call reporting a ruckus at the residence in early February. They found the victim in the front yard and Hidalgo in the carport after witnesses identified Hidalgo as the culprit. Police bandaged the victim’s head and hand and loaded him into an ambulance. The man – whose name police did not release – was taken to a San Jose hospital. Though police found the tip of the victim’s finger, doctors could not reattach it.
