DALLAS (AP) - A Florida detective who was stabbed near Dallas by a prisoner being transferred to Nevada told a 911 operator that the prisoner is "a schizophrenic."

Miami-Dade Det. Jaime Pardinas can be heard breathing heavily in a recording of the 911 call police released Wednesday.

He tells the operator he has been stabbed in the neck, describes Alberto Morales' height, weight and appearance and then adds, "He's a schizophrenic."

Morales escaped Monday after using a piece from his eyeglasses to stab Pardinas while they were stopped in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart in Grapevine, a community near Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

Authorities are still searching for Morales, a 42-year-old convicted sex offender.
