A man was stabbed in the head Sunday night while trying to defend a woman being harassed in central Las Vegas.
Just before midnight Sunday the stabber, a man, was verbally harassing a homeless woman who had a shelter set up near Main Street and Owens Avenue, according to Metropolitan Police Lt. David Gordon.
A passerby tried to intervene, and the man stabbed him in the head with a knife before running away, Gordon said. A suspect was later arrested less than a block away.
The man who was stabbed was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening.
