WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - One person was injured in a stabbing on Friday in the 1700 block of Polk Street, according to the Wichita Falls Police Department.

WFPD officials said the caller was sitting on the porch of her cousin’s house when her common-law-husband, a 36-year-old man, approached her. An argument reportedly started between the two, and the suspect threatened her with a knife.

The cousin, a 53-year-old man, reportedly exited the house and told the suspect to leave the property. Police at the scene said the two got into a physical altercation, and the cousin was stabbed with scissors near his neck.

He was allegedly taken to a hospital via an ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect reportedly ran into a nearby vacant house and went out of the back; officers searched the area but were unable to locate him. WFPD said they have a person of interest in the case, and this was an isolated incident.
