Police today identified David E. Williams, 23, as the intruder who was stabbed to death in an Altamonte Springs home invasion.
Reports show that sometime before 9:40 p.m., Williams, of Altamonte Springs, knocked on the door of an apartment on Vineridge Run.
Altamonte Springs Police spokeswoman Kristin Kelting said that resident Juan Valderas opened the door to tell the person they had the wrong address. Williams pushed the door open and forced his way into the apartment.
Valderas and his wife, Eilyn Heredia, tried to overcome Williams and, at some point during the altercation, Valderas stabbed Williams with a knife.
Rescue crews transported Williams to Florida Hospital Altamonte, where he died from his injuries.
Heredia and Valderas were not injured, records show.

An intruder stabbed to death soon after he burst into an Altamonte Springs apartment shared by a man and his pregnant wife might have been trying to get into his ex-girlfriend's place a few doors down, records show.
Juan Valderas, 22, told Altamonte Springs officers that sometime before 9:44 p.m. Tuesday he and his wife, Eilyn Heredia, 29, heard someone pounding on the front door of their apartment off Vineridge Run.
Heredia went into the bedroom, while her husband walked to the door, the report shows.
Valderas told officers he did not recognize the man at the door, who was later identified by police as David E. Williams, 23.
The police report shows that Williams yelled out, "Let me in. Let me in. At least let me get my glasses out of your car."
"[Valderas] slightly opened the door to tell the person they had the wrong address," Altamonte Springs police spokeswoman Kristin Kelting said.
At that moment, Williams threw open the door and barged into the apartment.
Williams started acting nervous and anxious inside the apartment and began fidgeting in his pockets, as if he were looking for something, Valderas told police.
He then grabbed Valderas by the throat and started to choke him, according to the police report.
Valderas pulled out a pocketknife and stabbed Williams twice in the chest.
While Williams lay in a pool of blood in the living room, Valderas and his wife returned to their bedroom and called police. Valderas told the dispatch operator to send medical help because he had stabbed the intruder.
Neither Valderas nor Heredia was injured during the struggle.
Williams died Wednesday from his injuries at Florida Hospital Altamonte.
Police have not filed any charges.
Kelting said that detectives are interviewing Williams' ex-girlfriend, Tameka Wilson, who lives a few units from Valderas and his wife.
"It is possible to deduce that he might have had the wrong apartment, but our detectives are in the process of talking with the ex-girlfriend to determine that," Kelting said.
Wilson did not return calls from the Orlando Sentinel.
