SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are looking for what sounds like an unlikely suspect in a cutting on the city’s West Side.

They say they are looking for a man who is between 75 and 80 years old.

He is suspected of slashing another man on the arm during an argument around 11 p.m. Monday.

According to officers at the scene, the 45-year-old victim had come out of a home in the 100 block of Taos Street and began talking with a woman.

They said a car pulled up with two people inside including the suspect, who then got out of the vehicle.

Police say the senior slashed the victim on the arm with a knife, then he and the woman left in the car.

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Officers did not release a description of the vehicle.
