SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police say a West Side man was attacked with a knife by someone who accused him of stealing a gun.
They found the 28-year-old victim outside his home in the 300 block of Alicia Avenue early Friday morning.
A friend of the victim told officers they were standing outside around 3 a.m. talking when a man in his 30s walked up and accused them of stealing a gun that the suspect previously had hidden in a trash can in the area.
The victim’s friend told police he did not know the man who attacked him.
Police say he was stabbed multiple times in his arms and chest, and was in critical condition when he left in an ambulance.
The attacker ran away from the home.
Within an hour, though, officers had a suspect in custody.
They arrested a man who they found at a home just down the street.
Investigators also found a shoe in the middle of the street which they believe is tied to the case.
Just before they left the area, police towed away a vehicle that also appeared to be connected to the stabbing.
