HOUSTON –- An overnight altercation at a north Houston apartment complex turned into a double stabbing, police said early Thursday.
It was around midnight when police were called to the La Vista Villa Apartments on Marable Drive near I-45 and Airline Drive.
Investigators with the Houston Police Department said an ex-boyfriend went to his girlfriend’s apartment where she and her new boyfriend were visiting with a friend. A fight broke out, and the ex-boyfriend allegedly pulled a knife and stabbed the new boyfriend and cut his friend.
The victims got into a pickup truck with the girlfriend and fled to a nearby store to call 911.
Police arrived and arrested the ex, who was still at the apartment.
Both stabbing victims were sent to the hospital – one in serious condition and the other in stable, police said.
