Two people stabbed in random attacks on south east side

Police have a suspect in custody.

SAN ANTONIO — Police have arrested a suspect in the stabbing of two people on the south east side of San Antonio early Monday morning.

It happened around 3:15 a.m. on the 4100 block of S New Braunfels Ave.

Officers responded for a cutting in progress and when they arrived at the location, they found a man who had been stabbed in the parking lot of H-E-B Plus.

The 60-year-old victim told police he works as a contractor and was changing out trash bags when a man stabbed him in the upper back several times.

The victim was taken to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

When police were at that initial call, a second call for another stabbing was made to a location just down the street.

According to officers at the scene, a second victim was asleep at the bus stop when he was stabbed in his head and upper body. The victim ran to an off-duty officer for help after he was stabbed.

The suspect was located by police walking near Goliad and Whitefield.

He is now in custody.

This is a developing story.
