CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A 43-year old man is clinging to life after he was brutally stabbed by his girlfriend's ex-husband Sunday night.

According to police, 38-year old Jesus Garcia showed up at his ex-wife's house on Eckland Street, near Agnes. Officers said he ran inside and started fighting with her new boyfriend.

When investigators got to the scene, the 43-year old was stabbed and barely clinging to life. He was rushed to the hospital where he went straight into surgery.

At last check, the victim was still in serious condition. Officers said his eight-year old daughter saw the whole thing happen.

"She's been taken to mom," said Lt. Tim Brown of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "She was here at dad's house. Brave little girl. Eight-years old. That's kind of a tough thing for a little kid to deal with."

Garcia was arrested a short time later at his house. He's pinned with aggravated assault. Additional charges could be filed.
