SAN ANTONIO – An 18-year-old woman was hospitalized after San Antonio police say she was stabbed by a man while walking at the San Antonio River Walk.

The incident happened at 12:32 a.m. Sunday near the 1500 block of North River Walk, when the woman and her boyfriend were walking in the area.

Police said a man walked up to the couple from behind, pulled a knife and cut the woman on her rear left shoulder.

The suspect and the woman’s boyfriend got into a physical altercation, but the suspect soon fled the scene, according to officials.

The woman was taken to the Brooke Army Medical Center for treatment of her injuries, which were deemed non-life threatening.

The suspect is still at large and is wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police said the motive for the cutting is unknown at this time, and the suspect did not make any demands from them.

KSAT reporter Japhanie Gray spoke with visitors of the River Walk late Sunday to see just how safe they feel when strolling the area at night.
