When a man decided to flirt with a woman, her boyfriend didn’t take too kindly and pulled out a knife, police said.
Now, the jilted boyfriend faces a criminal charge, authorities said.
Last week, police in Tulsa, Oklahoma, said they arrested Trenton Galvan on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon.
Around 8 p.m. on Nov. 9, officers were called to an apartment complex for a reported stabbing, police said. The victim was stabbed in the chest and taken to the hospital, where he was in stable condition.
Investigators identified Galvan as the suspect. His girlfriend was walking back to their apartment when the victim tried to flirt with her, police said. Witnesses said the woman told Galvan about the incident.
Galvin went to get a knife and left. When he returned, he told witnesses that he stabbed a person, police noted.
Galvin fled before police arrived but was later arrested.
