ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 9) - Police are investigating after a man was stabbed and a bystander's car was stolen while he stopped to help the victim Tuesday in St. Paul. Police said the stabbing victim is expected to survive his injuries.
According to police, at about 11 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to University Avenue and Victoria Street on a report of an aggravated assault. When they arrived, they found a 31-year-old man being treated by medics for a cut to his neck. He was transported to the hospital and is expected to survive.
The victim reportedly told officers he was in a fight with another man before he was stabbed.
While officers were investigating the stabbing, a good Samaritan told officers that his vehicle was stolen while he was tending to the victim.
