Sherman Police said a fight between two restaurant coworkers on Saturday night ended with multiple stab wounds and a trip to the hospital for one of the men and an aggravated assault charge and trip to jail for the other.


Sgt. Brett Mullen said, at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, officers were dispatched to Texas Roadhouse in the 2700 block of North U.S. Highway 75 upon receiving a report that two male employees were fighting outside the restaurant and that one had been stabbed. Mullen said responding officers found the victim with multiple wounds, but the 26-year-old suspect had fled the scene prior to their arrival.


“They got into an argument over a female,” Mullen said. “They decided to go outside and fight. That’s when the suspect reportedly decided to use his personal knife and repeatedly stabbed the victim in the upper part of the thigh.”


Mullen said the victim was transported by ambulance to Wilson N. Jones Regional Medical Center and treated for injuries, which Mullen said were not life threatening. Investigators located the suspect at his residence a short time later and placed him under arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The man was booked into the Grayson County Jail, where he remained on a $30,000 bond Monday.


“Any time you see somebody fighting, give us a call and let us come safely handle it,” Mullen said. “Somebody could have a weapon and if that gets introduced to the situation, it can be deadly. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case here.”
