SHERMAN, TX -- Two teens are hurt and a man is behind bars after a stabbing in Sherman Friday afternoon.

Sherman Police say 20-year-old Michael Woolsey is behind bars for allegedly stabbing his 16-year-old ex girlfriend and a 19-year-old man in a field off Epstein Street.

"Right now we don't know if he was waiting on her or if he just happened to be there, but we're assuming that he went in a jealous rage seeing her with him and started to attack her with a knife. At that time the 19-year-old victim started to try to defend her and that's how he ended up getting his injuries" Sgt. D.M. Hampton said.

Rebecca Foster and her daughter were the first to help the two wounded teens.

"His face covered in blood and she was holding her arm. So that's when I hit the front door to see what happened," Foster said.

Foster says the girl, who was stabbed in the arm, was taken to the hospital by a family member. Patrick Hicks says his friend "Cruz" came back to his house with a severe cut above his eye.

"Cruz came out of the shower and I saw his eye, the meat hanging out of his eye and he was shaking hard and he was near tears and I could tell he was in pain," Hicks said.

Police say neither teen's injuries are life-threatening and they should recover.

Keneth McGraw says this sort of violence just does not happen in his neighborhood.

"Really no issues with anybody. Very quiet neighbood during the day and even at night," McGraw said.

Sgt. DM Hampton with Sherman Police says the two teens are lucky.

"Very fortunate. I mean with a knife, that's a deadly weapon. It could have seriously could have injured them more seriously than what they are or he could have killed them," Hampton said.

"It was stomach crenching. It was scary too I didn't want to lose a friend that way. We've all had to deal with death and that's a hard thing to deal with," Hicks said.
