TULSA - A man was stabbed in the neck as he tried to break up an encounter between another man and woman in north Tulsa late Friday night, Tulsa Police say.

At about 11 p.m., officers responded to a call at a park near Utica and Admiral to investigate a report of a stabbing. When they arrived, they found a 28-year-olod man who had cuts on his neck, but they were non-life-threatening, according to EMSA and the Tulsa Fire Department.

The victim told officers that Jordan King, 26, was the one who cut him after the man tried to step between King and the woman fighting.

The victim said King pulled the woman to the ground. When he stepped in to stop the altercation, he suffered the minor cuts. Upon investigating, police say they learned the suspect had fled south. King was later apprehended at 11th and Denver. Police used the help of K9 Officer Ozzy to track the suspect more than a mile.

King was booked into the Tulsa County Jail for assault with a deadly weapon.
