The Falcons fan who was stabbed in a fight after last night’s NFC Championship Game has been hospitalized and is in stable condition, while police continue to look for his attacker.
According to Atlanta’s WSB-TV, the unnamed Falcons fan was stabbed in the neck during a fight with a 49ers fan on their way out of the Georgia Dome.
“Well, one of the Falcons fans just kept talking, telling him, “You ain’t going to come here and win and nothing,’ and he hit the man, and that’s what happened. The man went into his pocket and cut him,” witness Tony Morgan said.
Police officials said they believe they recovered the knife used in the attack, but haven’t detained the attacker.
The victim, a 35-year-old man, is recovering at Grady Hospital.
