Victim stabbed while playing Pokémon game in San Antonio park


A man was stabbed in a San Antonio park on Saturday morning while playing a Pokémon game, police say.

The knife attack happened around 1:45 a.m. on the 9300 block of Somerset Road, KSAT reported.

Police say the man was playing a Pokémon game in a park when two men approached him. The men then stabbed the player several times in the upper torso before fleeing on foot, KENS 5 noted.

The victim then drove home and called for help. He was transported to San Antonio Military Medical Center and was reportedly in stable condition.

The two suspects have not yet been found or identified.

According to the police, the investigation is still ongoing.

The attack is not the first time an individual has been stabbed while playing a Pokémon game.

In July 2016, at the height of the Pokemon Go craze, an Oregon man was stabbed while playing the game on a device, Breitbart News reported. Despite his injuries, the victim was determined to “catch them all” and continued to play before seeking medical attention.
