Penny Dunn, San Marcos Police Department commander, said the man was stabbed during a disagreement between two groups of individuals. The attacker fled the scene.
One man was arrested at the scene for not complying with SMPD. Dunn said this is a “tampered investigation” due to the amount of alcohol involved in the incident.
The victim is hospitalized and is in stable condition, Dunn said. The man was able to answer a few questions from SMPD about the incident.
Dunn said there was “a lot of commotion happening at once” because a car accident also occurred during the time of the stabbing.
Dunn said SMPD believes this is an isolated incident and hopes anyone with information about the case will come forward.
