SAN ANTONIO — A man was found tied up and critically injured on the side of the road on the far east side Saturday morning, Sheriff Salazar says.
The incident occurred at the 11000 block of La Vernia Road at 7:30 a.m. Saturday.
Salazar says when deputies arrived at the scene they found the man tied up and appeared to be suffering severe injuries to his face and upper body.
Salazar says he believes the man was stabbed several times as a "heinous attempt at murdering a young man." He also says it's a "heartbreaking situation."
The man was identified Saturday night as Joshua Sandoval, 24, resident of New Braunfels, TX, according to BCSO.
The man is currently in critical condition at SAMC hospital.
The sheriff is asking for the public's help to call 210-335-GANG with any information.
