Man stabbed in the chest while trying to break up fight
SAN ANTONIO – A fight broke on the Southwest Side, and the guy who tried to stop it ended up in critical condition. It happened just before 1 am early Sunday morning at a building on the 1500-block of Somerset Road.
Police tell us the building is a ‘Bring Your Own Beer’ hang out. The patrons were listening to a band when two guys started fighting. The fight then spilled into the parking lot. A man in his 20s stepped forward to try and break it up when another man pulled out his pocket knife and stabbed him in the chest.
Immediately, almost everyone fled the scene. Police had trouble getting info on scene because the remaining witnesses to the stabbing were uncooperative. The suspect fled the scene in a pick up or SUV.
The victim was transported to SAMMC in critical condition.
Police are still investigating the incident.
