Blotter: No arrests made in connection with last week's stabbing

No arrests have been made in a stabbing incident early Friday morning that left a 19-year-old man hospitalized.

He was taken to a local hospital, but Denton police spokesman Shane Kizer said the man's current condition is unknown. He said the case had not yet been assigned to an investigator as of Monday morning, but the initial information provided by witnesses is hazy, he said.

The victim's friend, who police did not identify, originally called Hickory Creek police to report a stabbing at the Hickory Creek Campgrounds, Kizer said.

Witnesses later changed their story and said the victim was stabbed at a home in the 1600 block of Glendora Court in far south Denton, where he and a 19-year-old suspect were allegedly supposed to fight, Kizer said.

Hickory Creek police shared their information with Denton police, which is investigating the matter.
