A Lubbock man is in jail and another is in the hospital, after a stabbing Friday evening. Emergency crews and police responded to a call in the 4800 block of 11th Street about 5 p.m. Friday.
Pulling in to have dinner with her grandmother Kim Roark never expected to see several first responders on the block.
"We saw an ambulance, about four cop cars and then two first responder vehicles. Two of the roommates were standing out in the front yard, both on their cells phones," Roark said.
Lubbock police say they responded to a stabbing call at 4805 11th Street Friday evening.
Sgt. Jim Curtis says, "When we arrived we found a victim of a stabbing in the living room. The stabbing was apparently the result of an argument between the victim's girlfriend's brother."
Sgt. Curtis says during a conversation between the brother of the girlfriend and her boyfriend things became heated. He tells us the 19-year-old suspect was with his sister when he allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim in his back.
"At the time, we thought the injuries were life threatening. From what EMS had told us, he was transported to UMC," Sgt. Curtis said.
"One of the roommates got a little hysterical, the girl," Roark adds.
Roark says not long after the girl's reaction, police arrested a suspect. "He was lead off, he was cuffed, then got into the police car. He laid down," Roark said.
"The brother of the girlfriend was arrested. He is charged with aggravated assault," Sgt. Curtis said.
We're told the 19-year-old suspect does live at the house where police responded, which neighbors says at least four Tech students call home.
Police tell us the victim will spend the night at UMC, while the suspect will eventually be transported from the city jail to the Lubbock County Jail.
