AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man was stabbed Monday afternoon near the southwest corner of the University of Texas campus.
Police were called to the intersection of Whitis Avenue and W. 21st Street at 1:03 p.m. A husband was driving his wife, seated in the front passenger seat, when a male friend in the backseat stabbed the driver in the neck. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
The suspect in the backseat, a friend of the couple, is not in custody.
