AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man was arrested Tuesday in connection to a stabbing in a Walmart parking lot in New Braunfels earlier that same morning, according to the New Braunfels Police Department. 

The 24-year-old victim arrived at a Walmart located at the 1200 block of Interstate 35 South around 2:20 a.m., police say. As he got out of his car, police say an acquaintance approached him and the two began arguing. 

“A verbal argument quickly escalated into a physical fight, which then ended with the suspect stabbing the victim,” police wrote in the release. 

First responders took the victim to San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment and he was listed as being in stable condition. 

The suspect, identified as 22-year-old Nicholas Zachary Santellan, was arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was arrested at his home on West Bridge Street and taken to Resolute Hospital to be treated for minor injuries he sustained during the incident at the Walmart parking lot.

Santellan is set to be booked into the Comal County Jail, and his bond will be set at $200,000.
