"Man might have been wounded by his own knife"

I suppose that if you're going to pull a knife on somebody, you'd better keep a tight grip on it.


A man badly injured in a knife fight early Wednesday morning might have been the one who initially pulled the weapon, police say.


The argument turned violent when a Hispanic male in his late 20's pulled a knife and started swinging. But his intended victim grabbed the knife, investigators said.

The Hispanic male was stabbed multiple times. Officers said the wounds exposed the man's internal organs.

According to police, the man with the knife left the scene. ...

After paramedics stabilized the victim, the man was taken to University Hospital in critical condition.

Police believe the man who left the scene may have been injured as well. They are monitoring local hospitals for a cutting victim described as a white male.

The case is being investigated as an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. But police don't know which man could face that charge.
