A party near 28th and N streets took a dangerous turn early Sunday morning.

"I had seen some sirens going off at 5 o'clock in the morning. And we were just wondering, you know, what's going on," says neighbor Megen Hennecke.

Lincoln Police say an argument between 36–year–old Antonio Hatten and his ex–girlfriend escalated, and he pulled out a knife. They say he stabbed the 33–year–old victim multiple times, and when a friend tried to intervene, he stabbed him too.

Police say the stabbing happened in front of the victim's four children. She suffered some cuts to the face and the stomach but is expected to recover. So is the friend, who police say suffered minor cuts and a bite on the chin.

According to officials, Hatten ran off after the stabbing and was picked up by the Fugitive Task Force in Omaha Tuesday.

He's charged with First and Second Degree Assault. Police say this isn't his first time getting violent with the victim.

"He was arrested for assaulting the same victim in November of 2013. He fractured her finger, was arrested for Domestic Assault, and sentenced to 90 days," says Officer Katie Flood of the Lincoln Police Department. 

This time, police say he assaulted her just six days after getting out of jail for violating a protection order.

This stabbing comes after a fatal shooting the same weekend, just one block away. Still, neighbors say most people in the area look out for one another.

"Knowing the fact that you know, we're still protected in the neighborhood, hat we have good friends and family around here that have really come forward, [and are] talking about everything, we're really good around here," Hennecke says.
