CORPUS CHRISTI - A young man is stabbed multiple times while defending his girlfriend this morning.
The victim's older brother saw the whole thing happen. "Sad thing is, we know the guy, really well," said the brother.
The victim said 24-year-old Gilbert Gomez started threatening his girlfriend. "He was saying he was going to slap her," said the victim. "I stepped up to protect her, he pulled out the knife and just attacked me."
Police said they were able to locate Gomez very quickly. "They told us where this male had been staying," said CCPD Lieutenant James Gray. "Officers were able to find the house and arrest him."
The victim was released from the hospital with stab wounds all over his body. He said he's in serious pain, but the safety of his girlfriend is his first concern.
The family is grateful that he's alive, but they want to see his attacker behind bars. "We want justice to be served," said a family member.
Gomez is in jail, facing a charge of aggravated assault.
